think you should try to design it to eliminate the bracket that bolts to the block and make a solid mount that bolts to the crossmember and then bolts to the block...eliminating 1 mounting point

Yeah a solid piece from the crossmember to the block is the best idea. It eliminates any flex at all period.

Here is one that i made just out of spare metal i got from a metal shop. Used a pipe that fit the Prothane front dogbone lower mount bushing perfect and did my own crappy welding on it. It held together for 2 years before finally cracking, just rewelded it and it was good. Then the tubing where the bushing was split where i welded it to the short piece of pipe going to the block.

If you were to make it out of a nice solid aluminum or steel it would be alot better.

This mount already exists! Custom steel makes it and GregV sells it...

Let alone I made one also and there was 0 interest in them. I used steel, I ended up selling pieces because no one wanted to buy them made.

How much to make the bottom section a larger diameter so a factory bushing could be pressed in?
