I have Stern motor, 034 driver side tranny, stern pass. side and stern snub.

Vibrates at idle, but it's tolerable. My shifting has improved quite a bit, a lot less drive train slop. My only complaint would be vibration at idle, but I expected it to me more, and I havent let them settle in past their 5000mi break in period yet.

yeah looks like stern doesn't make a driverside tranny mount... so i guess id go with an 034 and go with the setup you have

Do the stern motor mounts make your steering wheel vibrate?

Stern makes a driver's side mount, but it isn't progessive like the passenger's side tranny mount is. The ride will be much harsher, and is more catered for track orientated vehicles or people who just want a solid drivetrain and don't care about vibrations that come along with achieving that goal.

034 SD motor & tranny mounts here.

First impression is noticeable vibration at idle but soon as any throttle is applied, its as smooth as butter. Once the mounts settle in then it wasn't ask much vibrations but still noticeable steering wheel vibration.

I drove the car around a huge horse shoe exit ramp and immediately felt less motor shift. It seemed more solid and definitely is an upgrade. After a few weeks I forgot all about the vibration and was only reminded when ppl would ride with me.

I would recommend 034 on all mounts.

I also have 034 Street Density mounts, yet to be installed (motor and tranny). Other drivetrain mounts installed is Stern Power Ring, 034 snub w/cage, and Stern rear diff carrier mount bushings.

This is the Stern Driver side transmission mount, it is actually the first mount they had made even before their Pro series mounts.

Best used on a car that has a fully built and balanced motor, not really suited for a street car with stock motor. If you go with with Stern motor mounts and Stern passenger side transmission mount you can go with a 034 density driver side transmission mount or just stick with the stock one.


The main advantage of the Stern mounts is the fact that the bushings can be changed or replaced, so if you start off with a Soft version motor mount you can always change it to a Firm just by changing 1 of the bushings inside.

Slightly more than my stock, yes. I'm waiting the 5000 miles though before I say its an awful vibration. It's really not too bad.
