poly or rubber?

Which should I go with when I reinstall my 4.16 t-case and bucket?
How bad are the stock mounts really?
Anyone?

Re: poly or rubber?

Go rubber, and buy a bucket, or a mighty kong (whiich is what I have and it is nice) I have no experience with bills bucket so I don't have an opinon. The rubber bushings will stretch the poly will not...and it will find the weakest link.

Re: poly or rubber?

Just my $.02 but if you are using a bucket or very good HD arms....go with Poly and there is no weak link.

I'm running Spidertrax HD arms and poly mount kit. The long arm picks up 2 extra bolts from the side of the t-case. I'm running a GRS11. I love the set-up.

Re: poly or rubber?

i had poly ripped my frame mounts up... went to old rubberz again. they lasted for a year. started breaking em on vertical rock ledges.. a few at a time.. decided to go back to the "unbreakable" stock NEW rubberz (since now i have a fukit bukit) from dealer.. $14 a piece. broke 1 within 20 minutes on a pretty easy obsticle at zookin (beacon). the old dried up mounts take a better beating. i switched with a poly mount i was given at the raffle (thanx Max n Heidi) on the torque side (short arm) and new rubberz on the long arm.
i beat on it all day at paragon yesterday. made it the farthest up the bowl on pipe bender [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] (ill b back) with no probs.. bounced up some steep climbs, grinded the front up vertical ledges. let craig drive. That speaks for itself if you have ever witnessed craig drive w/o castors. let gary drive it on 2 wheels.. no probz... whooped on it in mass on ma belle, jeep eater stood her straight up.. no probz.

Re: poly or rubber?

I think the best idea I've come up with yet is stock rubber mounts BUT use a short piece of chain between the frame & the mount to limit stretching so they don't rip.
I put poly mounts on my Zook & cracked my t-case right open!
All poly mounts are is poly sway bar bushing ya know?..

Re: poly or rubber?

I have poly on most of my suspension and I am slowly changing from rubber to poly. I don't have any problem with it.
