energy tran mount

just picked up my trans mount. ive seen a lot of feed on this saying theres going to be a lot of vibration? lot of people are saying to remove the spacer? on the directions says: upper preload plate must be used. (it is not a spacer).... do I go ahead and install the preload plate they came with the mount? any info on this would be great. thx

Re: energy tran mount

Try it with the plate, and see if it's a problem. I've had the same Energy Suspension poly trans mount, with plate, under three different setups (M6, TH400, TH400+Gear Vendors) in my 94, and no problems. Yes, there is a small amount of added vibration, but nothing objectional. Seems to vary a lot from car to car. The A4 guys seem to have more problems than those with an M6.

You'll never know until you try it.

Re: energy tran mount

Front wheels on ramps, or jack the front end and put jackstands under the subframes or A-arms. Block rear wheels. Support bottom of trans w/ a floor jack (piece of 2x4 to spread the load), jack slightly to lift up on the mount, remove mount bolt, lower the trans cross-member, unbolt the mount from the trans.
