Back again with more questions on what to buy for my 2007 V50 T5 AWD (auto).
After combing through the DIY Sticky, my issues of vibration when driving, visible engine movement and thunks when going into Reverse can be chalked up to being worn engine mounts. Checked service history, as I've only had this car for about a year, and sure enough, nothing done- currently at 125k miles.
So, I started the hunt for new mounts- left, right and torque.
Problem is... there's a bit of discrepancy in cost when comparing IPD or Rock Auto, and brands as well.
(Prices are rounded)
IPD has their Mount Kit Builder:
Right- #124239 Enging Mount (no name, just Aftermarket) for $88
Left- #124579 MTC Engine Mount for $70
Torque- #115133 Hutchingson Lower Torque Mount for another $76 (another option- Billet for another $40)
Total : ~$235
RockAuto has a brand called URO Parts:
Right- #31262676 for $50
Left- #31316498 for $44
Torque- #31277442 for $32
Is the ~$90 savings that big in part difference? I've shopped from RockAuto multiple times for all of mine, and friends cars, and has never done me wrong. I am inclined to get RockAuto parts, but if IPD is more trusted with brand names they resell, then I can definitely swing that way.
Any and all input is appreciated, thanks in advance!
