Suzuki Samurai OEM Transfer Case Mount
Looking to replace your stock Suzuki Samurai mounts? Other mounts on the market are basically solid mounts of bolt-through designs and do nothing but cause problems. Frame mounts rip off and mounting holes egg. If yours show signs of damage, stress, or wear, now is the time to replace them. It’s also a great idea to keep one or two as spares in your toolbox. Comes with a lock washer and nuts.
Note: Beware of other mounts that are not OEM Suzuki. They are usually made of inferior materials. Many manufacturers are too heavy-handed with fillers added to their rubber such as chalk. This makes the rubber less pliable and more likely to break away from the plates the rubber is bonded to. If we ever find a better option than the factory ones, by all means, we’ll sell it. Until then, we have yet to find a better “non-solid” mount than those issued by Suzuki.
People frequently ask why their mounts are breaking. There are a number of potential reasons for this:
- Your mounts could have failed due to a combination of bent transfer case brackets and the added stresses of off-roading.
- It could also be that the mounts you’re using are just old – rubber subjected to constant hot and cold temperatures can deteriorate over time.
- They could also have been oil-soaked at some point, causing chemical degradation.
- It also could be caused by an extreme amount of torque applied to the mounts due to lower gear ratios and higher drivetrain stress.
Low Range Off-Road has had these mounts tested by an independent lab and the results were astonishing. The OEM mounts were much stronger than the aftermarket supplier could produce.
When testing them on their own press the results were equally impressive. The OEM Mount stretched almost 5 inches before breaking!
It’s pretty hard to find fault with a part that’s probably been in use on most Samurais for 20+ years without a failure.
