Soooo noticed some pretty good bounce while dropping the lift. Does this look like excessive play? Video doesn’t really capture well but here’s an idea. I’m just not sure how much play there’s supposed to be. Getting a bit of front end vibration among a couple other things I think can probably be attributed to bad mounts. Passenger mount looks fine. Vehicle is a 2013 SI Sedan.

Not sure a bad mount would bounce more though...I'd imagine it would bounce less and feel stiffer due to faulty mount, though I could be wrong. I would inspect them and change if you feel necessary.

How many miles are on the car? That doesn't seem like a whole lot of play, but most bad mounts i've replaced are way past that point. Like you hit the gas and the motor damn near jumps out.

Stock mounts are like silly putty. It'll move easy, removing the subframe is scary. If you hear banging then I'd replace them.
Stock mounts are not solid rubber. After market are solid rubber, so I'd choose a lower durometer if upgrading unless your going for big power.

Thanks all, I just wanted to be sure. Trying to track down front end vibrations like 👀

alignment a week ago, new CV, wheels aren’t bent, they’re balanced, ball joints look good.

I’ll look around and see what else I can find doing on.
