1999 Civic EX
4.785 Final Drive in Si Tranny
In any gear (1-5), when I let off the gas pedal quickly (don't feather it / slowly let off), the car kind of "bucks" back and forth very noticeably. It's most aggressive in 1st gear and least (but still noticeable) in 5th gear. At the same time, if I barely press on the gas pedal (as in stop and go traffic) I get a similiar reaction.
I've determined that it's the motor mounts, namely the rear mount being the main issue. I can replace the rear mount with an OEM Honda mount just fine, but i'd rather replace it with something a bit more durable since it's under a higher load due to the final drive set / etc. However, at the same time I DONT want alot of rattling that comes with aftermarket mounts. So here's the options I've been debating:
A) Get energy suspension inserts on top of the new mounts.
Notes: Alot of people are complaining about aggressive rattles.
B) Get just the Hasport rear mount
Might be too stiff?
C) Get ITR replacement mounts
supposively more beefy than others but retaining stock comfort?
D) Just replace the mounts with OEM Si.
