Default Transmission mount recommendations?

Hey everyone, I have a rear main seal leak starting, and a throwout bearing on the way out, so I'm going to drop the tranny and replace along with the oil seperator plate.... I figured i should replace the transmission mounts while the trans is out. Any recommendations? I'm only asking as i see a huge difference in prices on aftermarket ones. I'm not running any huge power numbers, so i don't think the priciest ones are necessary... any experiences or recommendations?

Go with OEM or a Group-N mount: http://turninconcepts.com/product_in...roducts_id=620

Also upgrade the transmission crossmember bushings: http://turninconcepts.com/product_in...roducts_id=310

Or you could do a driveline upgrade (package) of the engine and transmission mounts (both Group-N) as well as for the transmission crossmember bushings: http://turninconcepts.com/product_in...oducts_id=1083

installing tomorrow. i've heard nothing but good things about the group n mount upgrades. the transmission crossmember bushings are supposed to help. i had a big issue with turn in concepts this time around, but you can order the group n stuff other places. either way i'll let you know after the install.
