I'm assuming that most, if not all people, would like some. It's been brought up many times, but no one has got any to the market.

i know our upper mount looks just like a cavy or sunfire, rksport sells a real nice upper for them, as for the lower im clueless... the lower for a cavy looks like a dogbone you may have to measure and call them to see if it works.

the uppers do look really similar, I have a freind that has the rks upper mount and we will try to see if they will swap. If they do thats one less I have to make but the lowers look totaly different. They only have one bushing in each one and its a cast steel piece on the front mount. The rear is on a pedestal above the rack but it looks pretty simple.

hummm, i didnt know sprint made a 3" i think mine are like 1.8 or 2. but i just did the intercooler plug swap and yes the front mount is totally different its got two bolts on the engine instead of a through bolt with a bushing around it. also look into the tranny mount in the rear.

They make both 1.8" and 3".

the RKs upper mount is really well made, i had it on my 02 cavalier, as far as the dogbone lower, prothane actuallty makes it, and RK markets it as there own, as far as i can tell the upper is truly there design.

Heh I would of got the 3" if I knew they were made, I have the 1.8 but then again I think about it and the 1.8" is perfect, specially for around this area.

Trust me the 1.8" rides ten times better.

I would test them in my car before I would ever let someone use them but I do understand your concern.
