I think this is why I need SFC's

This is a discussion on I think this is why I need SFC's within the Suspension and Handling forums, part of the General Help category; The stock mounts will do the job if that's what you prefer. Poly transmits a little more noise but also ...

    easiest way is to put the car on jack stands under the subframe and a jack under the rear end just to take tension off the torque arm. As you unbolt the front TA mount it will want to go up into the tunnel, jack up on the center of the rearend and the front of the TA will come down. Then once it's not under load you can unbolt it and take it out/reinstall it. The front mount is a bit of a pain. You might need to lower the rear again a little to get those long rear bolts out through the top, this is why you can't do it with the suspension loaded, not enough clearance above the rearend to get the bolts out the top.

    I agree, can't think of what else might be hitting, your e-brake cable isn't up there is it?
    Might want to put a thin coat of paint on that spot and see if it gets scraped off again or if you fixed the problem.

    well i got and installed my new SFC's and at the same time i did a poly trans mount.... but the tranny mount sucks so far... i went out to the strip and every time it hit 3rd gear the car started to shake pretty bad, i knew the poly mount would be stiff but i didnt expect it to be as bad as it is! anyone have any ideas? i welded in the SFC's with the suspension all preloaded and everything so i cant see that being the problem inless i didnt get the control arms tight enough but i would think i would be getting a different feel?

    haha i know this is old but i finally figured out what was rubbing on my driveshaft... i nevery really looked real close at it but i just decided to investigate and at the very top of the Torque arm i felt something.... and OMFG it was a zip tie end that was tied to the E-brake cable and never trimmed..... so ya i feel stupid!

    you think that sound was bad, if you really want to prank some one, tie a thick one on the drive shaft. It will drive ppl nuts.


    Glad you found out what it was.
