Complete rear engine mount with stock rubber and metal bushing removed, and replaced with 70 or 88 durometer solid Energy Suspension urethane bushing,
For the 2004-2012 Mazda3 and the Mazdaspeed3 and 2012 Mazda3 and the Mazdaspeed3, 2.0, 2.3 and 2.5. Also fits 2006-2010 Mazda5.
Improves drive line response by inhibiting driveling lash, putting all that motion to the task of moving the car along. After removing the rubber from new stock mounts, we weld in strengthening pieces and then powder coat the metal black or silver. We then install the solid urethane bushings. The 70 durometer bushings, which are recommended for the street. The 88 durometer bushings, which are only recommended for racing. These may be too harsh for the street use. They may cause an undesirable resonance in the car at idle speeds but should not interfere with normal driving characteristics. For daily driving and normal street applications, order the mounts with the 70 durometer bushings.

I love this mount it feels great. If your looking to upgrade your speed3 then this mount is where you start for sure. My car feels smooth at higher rpms and a little rough at idle but not as annoying as I thought it would be. Definatly going to need a new clutch soon my car has 74000 miles and this mount takes away from like 80% to 90% of the movement front to back so when the clutch engagues its a little more harsh than stock so when you race it wears the stock clutch a little more.

For $90 you really can't go wrong with this product. The quality of the finished product looks and feels great. It feels/looks like it will last for a long time. It also looks almost exactly the same as the OEM mount, so a dealer probably won't even notice you've changed the mount to an aftermarket. ;)
Anyone with a minor amount of mechanical knowledge can install this upgrade. It took me less than 15 minutes to swap out the old motor mount.
Initial impressions are good. Shifting feels great and solid. The clutch grabs immediately and the car moves, no more "lurching" with this mount. The vibrations were noticeable at idle and during initial movement in 1st gear, but have subsided TREMENDOUSLY in the 250 miles I've put on this mount. This is one of the best upgrades to any car I've done for the price.
My next purchase will be a short throw shifter to compliment the clean, crisp shifts that my 2004 Mazda 3s 5-door gives me now!

First of all the customer service was great. The quality was just as stated on the site. These mounts give a tight solid shift and pick up. NO MORE WHEEL HOP. NONE!!
