ok. so when i'm in the lower rpm range i tend to get some pretty bad interior rattling. i think this is due to the combination of my solid mounts and my exhaust, probably the headers mainly. it is probably worst in first and the begining of second, for example, if i shift to second a little early it comes out the most. so i was thinking of possibly doing a sound deadening project for winter. now this sounds like kind of a bitch to me and im wondering if this will be very effective as to helping the rattling. also i dont want to spend alot of money on this(ie dynamat). i think if i were to pin point the majority of the rattle its coming from the dash around the guage cluster area and possibly the side colums(where it is common to mount guages) anways. opinions? some advice on if its worth it? thanks!
Do you like the feel of the solid mounts or do you like what they do? I.e. eliminating wheel hop
There are other options.
i like what they do. they are kind of a rough ride, but they do a good job reducing wheel hop and i dont lose hp from my engine moving. they do a good job for sure! i have heard of torque dampeners and i think that if i got one now it would essentially be useless with my motor/tranny mounts. i would rather keep the solid mounts and deal with the rattling. but if i could keep the solid mounts and work on some interior sound deadening and get rid of the rattling i would. do you know if it would help significantly?
(Rick) Kewley (GMPD) also told us the car was lowered, the shifter throws were shortened, and the pedals were moved closer together, which is why the Red Line's ridiculously tall ride height, its poorly placed pedals, and its long-throw shifter leave us shaking our heads.
