I got two different ones from Rusty in 2002 or 2003. I just checked Rusty's web site, shows different mounts by Febi (right) and Lemforder (left) for $24.15 and $20.17, or Corteco/Freudenberg lists the same part number for right and left, only $13.64. If putting a Febi on the right and a Lemforder on the left makes it work as the factory intended, it might be worth the extra $17 or so. Question for the people who have claimed very short life for new motor mounts, were those Freudenberg mounts?
