The factory engine mounts on most Hyundai and Kia are mode of a very soft rubber material, this can lead to an indirect feeling clutch engagement and traction issues like axle tramp. Replacing the lower engine mount bushing with this upgraded bush not only gives the car a more direct feel under load, but also helps to reduce axle tramp and other traction issues.
It's worth noting that replacing this bush will add to NVH, meaning the car will shake slightly when idling. Given this, we have added the option now to purchase just a single bushing.
While the price is for a pair of pitch mounts, if you install a single mount on the engine side of the pitch mount, this will give you the majority of the benefit of the upgraded mounts, with drastically less NVH. This option may be perfect for anyone who's looking for a more direct feeling without the extra vibration from both mounts. This will be especially useful for DCT vehicles.

Makes a big difference. Pulling off the line feels way smoother and less Axel tramp.
I will say, the only downside if you install both the idle vibration is horrible. But if you put in N mode it removes heaps of the vibration.
If it's a street car definitely recommended just doing the engine side rubber and keep your spare for later.
I am very happy with this purchase on my i20n, one of the best value for money mods you can do. I have just ordered another set to put in my cerato 😁
Did it by myself with a jack and jack stands. I only replaced one bushing so far (the one closer to the engine), but so far there is less wheel hop when accelerating from a stop and less jolting of the DCT when downshifting. I turned on the aircon and sat at idle in sports mode and no major increase in NVH. Might even do the 2nd one down the track. Highly recommend!
I installed both and the change is noticable. The is an increase in vibration only at idle, so I might change out to one side only, but for now I'm happy with the outcome. Steering feel is improved and traction off the line is way better. Gear change from 1st to second (DCT) hits harder. Simply cannot go wrong for $30 and a 15 minutes under the car. A bench vice will come in handy once you get the bracket out to remove the holding bolt.
Perfect to change out with nothing more than car jack and a trolley jack.
I still have axial hop if I floor it without consequence but learn to drive within your limits
I finally installed these (street version) pitch mount bushes on the weekend. Seriously piss-easy job that just has to be done. Immediately noticed an improvement. I have fitted both sides for now and the NVH doesn't seem to be an issue; (will see how the missus thinks soon enough...)
