Anyone know where you can by the OEM rubber style cushions for the motor mounts? Looking for only the cushions- not the whole lower half of the mount. Having a heck of a time finding them & I don't want the urethane type. I hear they can cause engine vibration- enough that some people have posted they feel it in the steering wheel.

Why just change the rubber part. Rockauto has the DEA Part # A2292HD heavy duty mounts for your car for only $6.13 EACH. The standard ones are ANCHOR Part # 2292 and only $2.83 each.

I want to keep my 1977 Made in the US of A OE GM mounts.

I know it's crazy but I'm gonna rebuild my brake calipers too and a bunch of other 'original to the car' stuff.

Can you buy new ones & switch out the rubber parts?

They're cheap enough at rock auto alright,  but it's kind of wasteful doing that.  I'll keep hunting ... I know they're out there somewhere.

Thanks for the reply's Joe & Hawk

The brake calipers are a breeze.  I hit them with glass beads and then painted them with caliper paint.  Then installed a rebuild kit.  Real simple.  Left one is blasted and the right one is painted.  Rebuild kits just below them. Speed bleeders to the right of that.
