I can't seem to find any solid evident/confirmation for this. Any one want to charm in? I don't want to change to solid/derin bushings and later down the road find fractures/cracks on the frame instead. Thanks in advance.
I think solid mounts will eliminate the need for reinforcement. In the past, bad bushings cause more movement, more force when loading and unloading which is transmitted to the frame which eventually cracks.
