Some bending is expected over time. It does not reduce the benefits the insert provides. I have had one installed in my Mk7 Golf R for over 40k miles with minimal bending. Still works just fine. Also mine was the first revision and was installed practically when we released the product. If you have any issues, plase feel free to PM me or email contact@034motorsport.com.

Thanks,

Bradd@034

Some deformation of the Dogbone Mount Insert after installation is normal - there is a gap between the center of the factory mount and the insert to account for manufacturing tolerances of the factory cast aluminum and molded rubber.

Once installed, the insert will bend slightly towards the center portion of the factory dogbone mount, but will still reduce the overall movement in the dogbone mount by the thickness of the billet aluminum insert, as intended. Making the piece thicker can affect the installation process and introduce more NVH into the cabin than desired.

The Dogbone Mount Insert also features a lifetime warranty against cracking/failure.

The way my inserts bend... you gotta fight for it to come off and pop the new one in. You can actually feel the difference from a new insert vs a totally bent one and believe me on that. I recently upgraded my engine/trans mounts and installed a new insert a few weeks ago.. so far its great and hasn't bent.

Might have helped to have known that in the beginning...

Two thumbs up for 034 replying to this thread - I'm going to be getting one of these shortly and will post pics.

I agree, being a used unit that changes things. But MissLauren mentioned the back and forth stuff, what was the issue here with getting it resolved later versus sooner?
