3.4173 | Polyurethane Body Mounts | '68-'70 Chevy Impala
Energy Suspension Polyurethane Body Mounts for 1968-1970 Chevrolet Impala
Polyurethane Body Mount Set 3.4173 from Energy Suspension offers heightened support for the 1968-1970 Chevrolet Impala, Bel Air, Biscayne, and Caprice. Rubber mounts are designed to be soft and pliable for maximum comfort, but this means they will often degrade over time. Polyurethane body mounts are made with durable material that will help maintain the height of vehicle and keep the body from sagging over time. This body mount set is designed to enhance performance while still giving you the ability to enjoy a leisurely drive, making them a great choice for hot-rod fanatics and restoration enthusiasts.
Signs of Damaged Body Mounts
Degraded body mounts can cause increased vibrations and road noise, due to unnecessary movement between the body and the frame. Body mounts that are in need of replacing will often be deteriorated and have visible cracks, making them easy to detect. Misalignment of the doors and gaps around the bumper can also be a sign of worn body mounts, giving your Impala a worn out face as opposed to the fierce look we associate with these automotive icons.
The Root of the Problem
With classic cars and restoration projects, age is usually the culprit for worn body mounts, but there are a few external factors that can cause wear and tear. Road chemicals and dirt, along with harsh weather conditions and UV exposure, can all cause your body mounts to deteriorate. Compression set can happen with rubber body mounts that have been on the vehicle for an extended period of time, causing them to distort under pressure. This can also happen with body mounts that are subjected to the extreme stress of hard, fast driving.
For street performance, polyurethane offers a lot of compression strength, allowing you to drive your muscle car with passion, while the mounts retain shape and structure. Unlike most rubber mounts that break down quickly and unevenly, polyurethane body mounts offer much needed support between the body and frame to keep your vehicle from sagging. This kit is specifically designed to balance high-performance and comfort, while providing a stable connection between the body and frame. With durability and longevity, comes the benefit of not having to constantly replace your body mounts, giving you more time to enjoy your ride.
* This kit comes with two different sets of core supports, one that fits 1968 models and one that fits 1969-70 models. Be sure to consult the installation instructions to differ between the two.
