G'day guys

First thing, yes i have done a search but haven't found the exact answer i'm looking for.

I have an EL Ghia which has the round engine mounts which i presume are the hydraulic ones?
just recently done an engine swap and one of the engine mounts has broken (so my mechanic told me)

Cars resonating a lot at low rpm.

My questions is which mount should I get? i'm aware there are the square ones for around $70 and then the round hydraulic ones that are like $240!

i'm more inclined to get the cheaper one, but which one is actually better in peoples opinions? Are the square ones just as smooth as the round ones?

Also its an AU engine.

Cheers

If it was me i would have a look around at other ford's see what they have going on but cheaper does not necessarily mean better I would go a trusted ford brand & just replace what was origanly there *if it was meant to be there in the first place. aha :roll:

Yeah i'm not sure. I agree, cheaper is not always better. Some people have said they use the cheaper square ones and others have used the round ones. But i wanna know whats better :cry:
