UPGRADING TO HYDRAULIC RIGHT MOTOR MOUNT, IS THIS NECESSARY?

1995 Plymouth Acclaim • 15,000 miles

The 1995 Plymouth Acclaim 3.0L V-6 AT definitely needs a new right motor mount, and I now see the option for a hydraulic motor mount #2711 instead of solid mount #2616.

Engine moved enough to break the exhaust after the downpipe, and the mount easily allows movement, but the left transmission mount is nearly new.

In your opinion is the hydraulic mount that fits worth 2x or 3x times the price of the solid one, with the car unlikely to be driven another ten years?

Hydralic mounts are for less vibration, it's really up toyou.
