    Sway Bar Has Gouge In It!!!!!!!!

    Hey all. My 98 m6 camaro has a moderate gouge in the swaybar underneath the ac compressor. It fits the profile of the pulley exactly. I understand this is from the motor torquing over but what I want to know is, what do the factory motor mounts look like? I can't see much from the top other than the driver side and it almost looks like a miniature engine stand. With 4 "legs" coming off the k-member. I just can't see the part that attaches to the motor. I ask this since I'm not sure if they have ever been changed. I hear clunking if I get in it too hard too soon. Like the tranny is moving. I plan on going with urethane for that. Are there aftermarket motor mounts that look different than O.E.M.? I only know what typical small block chevy motor mounts look like. I have owned this car a month. When I rev it standing next to the car I don't see a lot of movement. What do you all think?

    Are your sway bar links bent?

    All seem normal. I spoke to a guy at o'reillys and he said it was flexing. I said thats impossible since it is mounted in two fixed bushings on the frame rails. The compressor is on the pass side and when the motor torques in that direction the compressor will move down, just didn't think it would move that much. It has to be motor mounts.

    Then change the motor mounts. Have you had someone torque the engine while looking under there?

    The motor mounts are a HUGE PIA to swap.
