The side mount keeps popping out a little on one side of the mount and the stock rubber is good???????

:scratch: It goes between the engine and the mount.

I've never seen a torn rubber passenger mount but it does compress and collapse. If you can't get the prothane in there, it's collapsed.

I had an old passenger side mount compressed pretty bad, but still managed to press the prothane insert in. Works just fine. Took the hydraulic press to push it in, but still usable.

Whey even use inserts at all when there are brand new solid mounts available?

Agreed. I did take a look at your site DM Racing, but couldn't justify spending nearly $200 when new mounts+inserts come in under half the price. I know "cheap Neon owner" but my car cost $800 to put things into perspective. If I were racing, it'd be a whole different story (and I'd apparently have more money to spend).

I have the poly mounts from DM. They are worth the money. No vibrations inside the car, but almost no engine movement. You wont get that with inserts.

Yes, the mounts are not real expensive. I have a set of "street" inserts I have been using for several years now. I do not have any vibrations to speak of inside the car and the engine hardly moves. I hear all over the forums that the solid ones do rattle your teeth out and are expensive. Not good for a daily driver.

On Modern Performance, they are $29 for the full set.
