Granny's Speed Shop - Neutral Feedback

I purchased the FC LSX Basic Kit Plus swap kit from Granny's. Some thing I am happy with, and some things I am not.

Good:

Subframe and trans brace fit great and easy to install.

Bad:

The kit was missing hardware.

The 7/16 bolt for the front of the subframe was too short. I had to buy a longer one.

The driveshaft doesnt come with the slip yoke. The description is misleading. Doesnt show a picture of the driveshaft. I believe this was done on purpose.

Cheap *** Korean engine mounts. I was torquing up my engine yesterday, and the nut thats inside the engine mount broke loose, and I had a real fun time getting the bolt back out. I feel like for $1000 bucks, he could at least provide Poly mounts, or something less cheap than what was provided. The mounts are very hard to install because they cover the forward top hole on the adapter plates.

Grant does not answer the ******* phone, ever.

I wont be purchasing anything from Grannys again. Should have went with Ronin.

My suggestion to anyone using a Grannys kit is to purchase new mounts right off the bat.

they probably use standard rubber mounts because that is what most OEM manufacturers use on street cars, and you get less complains about vibrations with rubber versus polyurethane. unfortunately you just got unlucky and wound up with a dud that wasn't QCed very well.
