Mounts

The main purpose of mounts is to reduce dynamic loads and to provide the fighting vibration of the engine, body and wheels.
Mounts are many types, divided into different groups depending on their application.
 
Engine mountings

Engine mountings

The majority of engine mountings are made of metal and rubber. Time, heat and chemicals affect the properties of rubber and can lead to total destruction of the mounting. Therefore timely replacement of the engine mountings ensures proper operation of the engine and passenger and driver comfort.

Transmission mountings

Transmission mountings

A transmission mount, much like an engine mount, is designed to keep your vehicle's transmission system in place. It works in conjunction with the engine mount to control torque and vibrations in the vehicle. It reduces the amount of vibration transferred from the engine bay to the chassis.

Rear axle mountings

Rear axle mountings

The rear axle refers to the drive axle which connects the rear wheels with a central differential, which is used to create proper distribution between both axle sides. Some rear axles connect with a crossbeam which just works to support the rear end of your vehicle, but this is only necessary for vehicles with front wheel drive. The rear axle bushes are an important part of your vehicle’s rear axle set up and should be in working order in order for you to drive your vehicle safely.

Strut mountings

Strut mountings

The strut mount is located on the top of the strut assembly and is used to provide a pivot point and mounting location for the strut. The strut mount is used on cars equipped with Macpherson type struts, accounting for over 70% of cars in the world market, particularly on smaller compact cars. The strut mount is normally made of rubber and has a strut bearing in the centre that allows the strut to turn right to left with the steering.

Control arm mountings

Control arm mountings

A bushing or rubber bushing is a type of vibration isolator, damping the energy transmitted through the bushing. A common application is in vehicle suspension systems. The bushing is made of rubber (or, more often, synthetic rubber or polyurethane) separates the faces of two metal objects while allowing a certain amount of movement. This movement allows the suspension parts to move freely.

Anti-roll bar mountings

Anti-roll bar mountings

An anti-roll bar is a part of an automobile suspension that helps reduce the body roll of a vehicle during fast cornering or over road irregularities. It connects opposite (left/right) wheels together through short lever arms linked by a torsion spring. Anti roll bar is connected to the vehicle chassis by anti roll bar bushes which absorb the vibrations which are caused by the road roughness. They are made from rubber and as all the suspension parts are exposed to rough conditions. That is why it is very important for them to be regularly checked and replaced if necessary.
