Warranty Information

AWR believes so strongly in our engine mounts and sway bars that as of May, 2008 we are now backing them with a limited Lifetime Warranty. What's more, this warranty, excluding bushings, is retroactive to all mounts and sway bars built previously by AWR. Basically, if it breaks or fails, we'll fix or replace it at our discretion. The warranty is 'limited' in that bushings are considered a normal wear item, so the urethane or rubber bushings are not covered, but if the metal cracks, breaks or otherwise fails, we'll replace or repair it.

    Mazda 2 Dog Bone mount

    Posted by Drew on 27th Dec 2020

    Absolutely some type of sorcery. Like many others have said....wish I did this on day one. At 70 duro there is a change to NVH, honestly for the better. Just enough to make the car feel and sound alive. It would take too long to really describe how much better the car is just driving around changing through gears. Totally different, how you wish it was from the factory. Cheapest, easiest, and most effective upgrade I’ve ever done to a car.

    Why haven’t you fitted one of these yet?

    Posted by HiroshimaSpirit on 23rd Nov 2020

    A must for any Mazda2. This mount is the standard in our community, and you will thank yourself when the car doesn’t fall on its face during aggressive 1-2 upshifts. You will also have better throttle response and clutch feel. Installation is a breeze and the quality of the part is unmatched. 70 durometer is the way to go for a daily driver. Upon first installation you will notice a sharp increase in NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness), but worry not! After a week or so everything will settle and you’ll forget about it while reaping all the benefits. Don’t hesitate on this mod!

    Mazda 2 Rear Mount

    Should have purchased this for my 2 sooner! Throttle response is more immediate, gear changes are more crisp. Couldn't recommend more.

    MAZDA 2 LOWER DOGBONE MOUNT

    Posted by Marlon Sumlin on 3rd Aug 2019

    Great customer service, ordered and had the product in two days! Installed the mount last night and let the wife take the car out. The install was straight forward and simple! We chose the 90 Duro for our Deuce and the NVH are not that bad. The car feels 1000% better, shifting is better, the car feels solidly underneath us and inspires more confidence on track. Quality part, quality service and a must upgrade for all Mazda 2 owners!

    Very first Mazda 2 Automatic Dog bone

    Posted by Dave on 23rd Jun 2019

    When I ordered this for my kid's car, I didn't think about auto vs manual trans. When the dog bone arrived, I realized that I had made a mistake. Then AWR's awesome customer service kicked in and they built me the very first torque reaction link (dog bone) for an automatic Mazda 2. Thanks guys! If your car has felt like there was a big rubber band between you pressing the throttle and anything happening, this dog bone will fix that problem. If the throttle reaction on your car has felt laggy or twitchy, this dog bone will fix that. If you were wondering if your engine was running, this dog bone will fix that - a fair bit more vibration will make it into the car. If you have old engine mounts, you'll probably want to replace those as well. Overall, I am very impressed, both with the customer service and with the difference this installing this dog bone made. It was worth every penny.

    Excellent and easy upgrade

    Posted by Cail on 24th Oct 2017

    I've read so much about this being the absolute best first upgrade for the Mazda 2, and now I see why. Shifting is quite smoother, but the biggest thing I've noticed is a pretty significant improvement in throttle response (Rev matching is much easier for me now). NVH is definitely noticeable, even with the 70d, but I enjoy feeling whats going on with the engine so it doesn't bother me at all. If I were to buy another 2, this would still be the first upgrade, hands down.

    Fantastic improvement, a must-have!

    Posted by Neil on 28th Apr 2017

    Fantastic improvement over the vague shift/throttle feel of the OEM mount. I ordered the 88 duro bushings for the dogbone, and I love it. Price: 10/10 Quality: 10/10. Installation took 15 minutes with seized bolts. I get the expected amount of NVH from the stiffer bushings, but that doesn't bother me at all. I love being able to hear and feel what the engine is doing. I would highly recommend this part.

    Improved Daily Driving Experience for 5MT

    Posted by Alex on 23rd Apr 2017

    Pick this up if you have a 5mt. I purchased a 70d for my daily driver. The NVH is actually kind of enjoyable but it decreases as the mount breaks in.
