I have a catalog from these guys, lemme take a gander at it

According to the catalog, it doesn't say what the motor mounts are made of in the kit but allstar does offer rubber mounts in place of the motor mounts from the kit. So I guess the ones in the kit are steel and the replacements are rubber, I suspect to reduce vibration? that's all I can tell you from the catalog -Mike-

P.S you can always shoot allstarperformance an email asking for some specs on them
