Focus ST Side Motor Mount Combo
The Damond Motorsports Side Motor Mount Combo is a must have for any Focus ST enthusiast looking to keep their powertrain solidly planted, drastically reducing wheel-hop and torque-steer, all while adding less NVH than the competition. Damond Mounts are ran on the quickest most powerful track Focus ST's, as well as many enthusiast's daily drivers.
The Damond Motorsports PMM/TMM design:
- The bushings are oriented properly to support the motor and absorb vibrations across the whole bushing.
- This allows us to use stiff bushings without increasing NVH to unbearable levels. Orienting the bushing carrier in a transverse manner further reduces NVH, as less stress is put on bushing flanges.
- Full length welded steel bases, and top PMM/TMM pieces.
- CAD designed, and FEA, and street/track tested. You can't make enough power to break this thing.
- All factory mounting points are retained.
The Damond Motorsports PMM/TMM specs:
- Made in the U.S.A.
- Machined aluminum bushing carrier, anodized gold or black
- Lower mount base and top bases are high strength steel welded, and super thick gloss black powder coating
- All high grade fasteners, and lock nuts
- OTS Energy poly bushings
- Minimal added vibes, along with lots of tire spinning instead of wheel hop.

Note: With these mounts there will be added NVH over stock, as well as a slight break-in period for NVH to settle.
At 3x,xxx, my pmm was shot. Oil drained all over. Having already replaced rmm(also shot), I figured don't fix until broke so I bought these two mounts.
Install was a breeze! Oh, and what a differnce in handling...
At first my car vibrated like mad. After a good mix of spirited/chill driving, they settled in. I'm glad I did it. The car really does not vibrate anymore. It resonates like an old hot rod down low. I personally like that my car now has that vibe.
I will say that if your car is vibrating bad, check your plugs. These mounts are like a built-in plug checker. In fact, I'd recommend changing them out at the same time if in doubt.
I like the stability upgrade.
This is one of the best mods it has a little vibrations but it helps with hop and traction how it should have been stock
After 1000 miles I'm very pleased. Minimal nvh. Great replacement for stock mounts.
What's most impressive to me is the quality of these motor mounts... they're just incredible. I was not surprised that both of my top side OE mounts were destroyed with me beating on the car on a regular basis, and I'm super happy with the performance of the new Damond mounts. Ran a SCCA Time Trial the week after installation and I was so happy with the feel of the front end in corner exits. Yes... a little NVH, but that doesn't matter to me as I don't daily the car. 5 Stars!
If you are concerned about NVH, seriously have no fear at all! It's insane how little vibrations and noise there is. I will put out this way... I had a 2009 Mazda 3 which has the same exact OEM passenger side mount. I replaced that with a JBR and the vibrations were so ridiculous, I honestly thought the car was broken at first and they never really went away much. It was obnoxious. I was hesitant to install motor mounts on the ST and after much research, I settled on the best. Damond. So when I first started the car after installing these, I was bracing myself for impact. I turned the engine over, and wow! It was completely different than my past experience. I actually laughed to myself and said if anyone ever complained about this, they would be crazy. Obviously you feel the engine more, but there's literally almost zero added NOISE besides being able to hear the transmission better now which is actually very neat. I also have a rear motor mount by innovative and powerflex small rmm trans bracket bushing. They all work flawlessly together. Car hugs tight turns much better now, and acceleration and over all connectedness to the car is fantastic. Get these! You won't regret it. Install them correctly and use all torque specs like I did, and it'll be amazing.
