    I bought powerflex engine mount inserts for the upper torque arm and the lower dog mount. Good combo i think, the vibrations aren't bad. Only noticed them at idle/start-up and junctions for like a week

    Yep, agree with above, torque arm, dogbone and I went with gearbox. All makes it more precise and the vibrations die down after awhile. After that you have rear arm bushs, front wishbone bushs and ARB bushs, most leave standard.

    I'm tempted by doing the gearbox mount, having already done the torque arm and dog bone. Does the gearbox one make much difference?

    I had the torque mount done first then the gearbox and dogbone mount added on so its hard to see which has made the difference.

    Cheers guys! Will probably get it done. I just wasn't sure about leaving the upper (on the right) OEM by itself. Don't want really bad vibrations from it though as it's my daily

    I’d definitely recommend the gearbox mount, makes a big difference to the gear change feel and I didn’t notice any extra vibration.
