    Hey mate, fitted a powerflex dogbone mount on my LCR last night, takes about 20 minutes. Take the under tray off, two 17mm bolts attaching the mount to the gearbox and two 13mm bolts attaching it to the chasis (make sure you support the gearbox eith a jack and a piece of wood to stop the engine swinging). Then remove the mount anf its just one 17mm bolt clamping the rubber bushes together, then just refit im reverse order. Hope this helps!

    Yes we do get a discount but you have to contact ollie from THS by email. Unfortunatelly i don't remember his address. I belive its something like ollie@thsperformance.co.uk. Try to write an email to this address. It should work.

    it says:

    This package includes the bottom Gearbox Steady (Dog bone) only.

    which means its whole gearbox engine mount (which is exactly what you look for)
