Best Motor Mounts for 2G TL

Which motor mounts are best for our 2g TL cars?

OEM? XLR8? Aftermarket Ebay? Aftermarket Amazon?

I would replace one at a time starting with the front hydraulic mount and see if it fixes the vibrations. For comfort, OEM mounts are the best and tend to last 150k+, if you go with aftermarket solid mounts you'll feel tons more vibrations but they'll probably never go bad. Also, there's no need to replace them all if its just one bad mount. That being said, I JUST replaced 2 of mine with the cheapest Chinese ones I could find on eBay and work perfectly but I'm just keeping it running as a spare backup vehicle.

there are no BEST's in the world.
however, there are products that do things really really well depending on what you want it to do.

if you want a stock like ride....OEM would be best.
if you wanted a stiffer mount - XLR8 would be best.
if you wanted a cheap OEM-like aftermarket mount ebay or amazon would be best.
so, figure out which product you would like for your certain application....Do you want stock? do you want cheaper alternative than stock? or do you want super hardcore race mounts???

Thanks! I decided to go with Beck and Arnley rear motor mount. I heard they were oem for Toyota and some Hondas. Without paying Honda prices ($180+ per mount! vs $80ish)

I ended up getting Beck and Arnley motor mount for front, rear, side, and 2 transmission mounts! All work without any issues and hold up great! Granted its been about 5k miles on them so far.

I had a B/A rear mount for about a year and hated every minute of it. Aftermarket mounts tend to translate more vibration through the rear subframe/steering rack and into the steering wheel. The shifts were also pretty harsh during spirited driving.

When I changed back to OEM it was like night and day with smoother idling and shifts. The downside is that OEM mounts don't last as long.

FWIW
