nother GS tranny mount issue

I know theres a thread about this already but mine seems to be doing the opposite of what papluh is expeirancing.




I think this could be is causing my axle on that side to get loose and leak fluid. Please discuss; and nick if you could leave your thoughts I'd appreciate it.

Looks like my mount that I have yet to put in. You'll have to wait till Nick has a chance to look at this. If it helps Leo (guy I bought my mounts off of) didn't say anything bad about his and they were new from GS.

The problem is....that it is dirty?

I don't understand why people don't just contact the person they bought the part from right off the bat; that's the way to get things taken care of.

From what I can see (specifically the last picture), the mount bolt holes are oval. Can you loosen the bolt and slide the bracket closer towards the tranny/engine? It looks like the mount is too far or pulling away from the tranny.

True, if the "problem" here has to do with that 2mm gap in between the lip on the poly insert and the bracket, then that is exactly what you would do to fix it.

In that case, it isn't a "GS tranny mount issue," but rather a "person who installed the GS tranny mount issue."

I see we are worried about a small gap in our tranny mount while an ugly corroded ground strap needs attention.

Yeah, it's not even attached to the trans

I only brought it up becuase on that side i've been leaking tranny fluid as well. If I just had the weird mount thing I wouldn't worry soo much; but becuase I'm leaking from the differential I look at as maybe a cause of that. so I posted pictures to see what you guys had to say. If it looks fine than I know that it's not my problem and something else is. I just wanted to know if that looked alright cause when I put it before a Mech. changed the tranny and it didn;t look like that at all.

There is nothing wrong there besides the ground wire problem..

When installing these we find quite a few use a single floor jack and get some sideways load on the engine mount. This is bad news. The engine should be supported vertically from the lifting hooks on the top of the engine otherwise you get some shifting. This is not a problem as shown in these pics. If you smash it the other way so it preloads the trans mount hard it will cause damage to the urethane face. I will get some pics of broken factory mounts soon.

On the stock mounts the only lateral location is in the engine side mount.

Adding a top mount to this setup puts too much lateral force on the mounts causing all sorts of issues. I do not recommend using a 9k style mount with my mounts.

Ok so Nick when installing your mounts should I run to autozone and rent out an engine support that spans the fenders? Tips and hints welcome here as I'll be putting them in soon. I was going to do the floor jack method but seeing you say thats not the best idea has me wondering.

After dealing with the tranny/weight of the engine during my tranny ordeal, I would definitely say rent the proper equip from autozone. It's as simple as taking off the tire (just gives you more clearance/room to work), sliding under the car, and looking straight up.

P.S. It's a good idea to use eye protection due to falling debris.

Trans fluid from the trans around where the axle connects probably just means your shaft seals are shot. It happens.

this is true but you have to add into the equation that my axle is flopping all over the place on the differential side. saabworks says it's a worn bushing. Plan is to ride out this tranny as long as possibe becuase it's not worth fixing and get a FM55-505 in there.

the mount isent causing your leak
the bushing in the diff is loose which is causing your problems the bushing loosening is a normal occurance on a NG 900 & 99 9-3
take care
