Questions regarding Engine Mounts...

So it appears that my passenger side mount is bad again which was replaced a few years back with OEM. I actually ended up changing all of them while I was at it but considering how these dont last that long and is a common issue on these cars has anyone used anything other than OEM? Im debating if I want to try out the Oreilly PowerTorque mounts which have a lifetime warranty. Usually I would go OEM but considering how frequent these go bad going with something with lifetime warranty would make more sense if you ask me. Brings me to my next question is there a good way to verify if my fronts and rears are bad? Tranny ones are easy to verify but the front and rear is a bit harder to check physically. I would hate to swap out the side mount to have it go bad again due to one of the front or rear being bad. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you for looking

I tried some cheap aftermarket mounts (the kind you see on Amazon or eBay for like $120 for all five mounts) and have decided to never go non-OEM for the mounts. Vibration was terrible. Already replaced the front mount with OEM, have the rear OEM replacement in a box ready to go when I have the time.

thank you for the response. I just replaced these mount a few years back and just sucks that they went out again. Known issue with these cars and others that share the same engine so was thinking of going aftermarket with lifetime warranty on them but you are right canít beat oem mounts.

I used Anchor mounts on my 4G and have been pleased so far. They've been on for about a year. I researched them pretty well beforehand and it seems they're pretty well versed in it. All they do are mounts - engine and transmission. I read on a few forums that they're the OEM manufacturer for some vehicles (not sure about Honda's though).

I ordered mine from Rockauto.

If you want OEM, try hondapartsunlimited.com. When you find the part # you need, search on Amazon and many times it's cheaper plus Prime shipping. I found the OEM front mount on Amazon but not the rear.
