Does anyone use these heavy duty motor mounts? Are they worth the money? I'm looking at the LAK-24094 mounts. Do they have an interlocking design?

I probably ought to just save the $80 and add bolts to my old ones. But I just wondered if I'd get any raving reviews.

Steve,
I purchased them to use in the 66 Fastback. To me, they looked just like the stock mounts and I wondered whether they had been worth the extra money. However, they may be made of better materials. I've had them in the car for over three years now with most miles on the street, but trips to the drag strip too. Everything remains OK with them.

I actually have some waiting for install. One thing I noticed is that when test fitting with the lowers installed the bolt holes are offset about 1/32 not allowing me to insert the bolts. This was after I removed all the extra rubber. I am hoping that mounted on the engine with weight it will magically go together. The old ones match right up. If the usual happens I will be modifying with the motor on the hook.

Hi Steve, I changed over to these mounts about 2 years ago to replace the stock items. I must admit when you have the hood up and rev the engine it does not seem to rock as much as with the stock mounts.

Summit have them listed for $40.39

Thanks for the reports, guys. I was hoping they would have some sort of mechanical interlocking device. In the picture on Summit's web site they look like standard mounts to me.

I'm just going to do the bolt mod to my old ones. Thanks, you saved me $80.

I did the bolt mod to my 65 mounts. It worked great the motor has very little flex at all. Kinda cool that you can tighten up the bolt for less flex or loose for more. I also like being able to feel the motor working.

I looked at them but decided to go with Prothane motor mounts. The engineering and construction on the Prothanes is impressive, and IMO well worth a hundred bucks.
