I don't quite have news yet (got back from Jensen East yesterday, which was a fabulous time had by all) but I did receive the Land Rover engine mounts and tried a side by side compare with the ones from the club store still mounted in the car.

The new ones have a larger diameter, which I don't think is a bad thing, and do in fact appear to be a bit thinner in the rubber area (apparently the ones from the club store are not quite as thick as I thought, but definitely thicker and I'm only looking for about a quarter inch difference anyway). They also look and feel more substantial, if that's possible to determine just by examination. One thing I've noticed with the existing mounts is that the passenger side mount definitely sags a bit (keep in mind that it's really more horizontal than vertical) when everything's in place. Hard to explain but maybe I can get a picture.

I'll pull the passenger side mount out in the next day or two and see what the swap accomplishes.
