Product range make up engine mountings, tie rods and tips, Bushes, water pumps, ball joints. The manufacturer has its own development department, and the production line is fully automated. In addition to cars, the company produces engine mountings commercial vehicles: Volvo, Scania, MAN, DAF.
We rated this manufacturer as the best in terms of fight against fakes. Because french quality is fast customers liked it, a lot of products appeared on the market in similar boxes, but employees are much smaller. To customers could distinguish the original, the company gives its products a sticker with logo, barcode and additional codes on the case.

Drivers are happy that with careful driving, rubber-metal products can serve up to 200,000 km.
In our opinion, the manufacturer should be in the ranking because of release of a new type of pillows with a hydraulic component. Besides rubber in them is a liquid that is bypassed from the chamber into camera, depending on the load on the car. This allows you to change degree of rigidity of engine support and ensures its reliable fastening at different speeds and terrain.

The company took a benchmark for the production of elements suspension, chassis, brake systems and engine mountings Japanese and Korean cars. In total, the assortment includes 26 product groups. Here everyone can find parts for Nissan, Toyota, Lexus, Mazda, regardless of the year of manufacture of the car. Judging by reviews, buyers like diameter tolerance accuracy holes and the location of the studs on the pillows. Thanks to this they easy to install under the engine without extra boring holes or fit.

Sixth ranking position for another German manufacturer pillows releasing them to engines of all European and Asian cars. The brand appeared in 1977. The main office is located near from Berlin. At first, the company specialized in brake systems, in which it achieved world fame, and then, gradually, expanded the range with other spare parts. Present in the catalog about 27,000 titles, including a large selection of pillows engine. Another company was engaged in packaging of little-known companies, therefore, the quality began to vary. Buyers in reviews recommend buy pillows directly in Russia, and not order on Ebay, since here they are more durable in service life.
We put the manufacturer in the rating because of the huge assortment. This is another world leader with an extensive catalog in tens of thousands, so here you can find rare supports engine that other suppliers do not have.

On the product always there are two stickers containing a description of the spare part, index details, barcode and inscription Made in Germany. Headquarters located in Dietzenbach. The company has been operating since 1954 and now part of the Bilstein Group. Own factories of the manufacturer located only in Germany, but the company is engaged in resale and lesser known parts. Buyers in reviews suggest that in original box can receive goods from Germany or item with labeled Febi. Therefore, on the Internet, order pillows for the engine is not recommended – they need to be looked in person at the store.
In our opinion, the manufacturer should be in the ranking, because which produces high-tech pillows with a hydraulic type. They are used on the latest models of Japanese and European cars, or can be replaced on earlier machines, instead of stock. This helps to almost completely eliminate engine vibration and Protect it from sudden fluctuations while driving.

Notice the range has been expanded with other parts for cars. Exactly this manufacturer holds the patent for the world’s first exhaust perforated pipe and then to the exhaust system with a catalyst. On all forums Walker pillow reviews positive. Drivers like moderate rubber stiffness and strong connection of metal parts. Stratification is observed rarely.
We put the manufacturer in the rating, because he is engaged selling only those goods that he made himself. Production facilities are concentrated in the USA and the UK, therefore, the quality of spare parts is high. Initially, the company supplies goods directly to the conveyor of German automobile plants, and under the Walker brand sells products in the spare parts market. Therefore, if you have a car made in Germany, then buying a “Walker”, you get the original.

- produces pillows for engines Porsche, BMW, Volvo, Opel, Jaguar, Ford;
- direct deliveries to conveyors VAG, Diamler-Chrysler, GM.

The ninth place in the ranking of the best is given to the Taiwanese manufacturer, which began operations in 1973. The company does not supply parts for conveyors, and produces only spare parts for a separate sale. IN The catalog has about 1,500 items. Since the company always specialized in the production of rubber goods for cars, it has extensive experience in the manufacture of rubber for pillows. According to reviews Drivers can see that the engine linings from this manufacturer do not clone the form of other brands, but are released on their own technology. Mostly used A-shaped design rubber insert to which the motor mount is attached. On the the official website has detailed information on technology and assortment. You can order directly on it, which is convenient and helps save on the services of resellers.
The main thing that we added the manufacturer to the rating for is application of spraying on metal parts of engine mountings, which protects against corrosion. Most other firms here just paint, so the case rusts faster. This is especially relevant for owners of cars stored on the street.
- there are pillows for all brands of cars;
- high-quality packaging (box and film) so that the rubber does not dried out during long-term storage;
- well matches the landing dimensions on the frame;
- marking with paint on the case protects against fakes.
- sometimes there are gaps when painting the pillow case;
- after 10,000 km, tears on the rubber may appear.
The penultimate place in the ranking we gave the manufacturer Febi. The company was founded in 1818. Now it is the largest in release of spare parts for cars and trucks. In the catalog There are about 9,000 items. Supplies carried out in 130 countries. Back in 1994, the manufacturer was ISO 9002 certificate awarded automatic production. Large shipments are shipped to several continents without delay due to computerized high rack warehouse.
There are many conflicting reviews on the Internet, in which some praise Febi products, while others complain about them. This is explained by the fact that the company produces something on its own, but something only packs. Regarding the engine mountings themselves, most often Lemforder products with an erased logo come across, which, apparently, received minor manufacturing flaws and cannot sold under an expensive brand (this applies only to supports engine). As a result, you get German products at a price of three times cheaper than the original. But it’s worth being prepared that on such rubber supports and casting irregularities are possible, but they will last they are long.
- since it’s partially a packer, sometimes it comes across in a box SKF or Lemforder products;
- good box – you can order from afar with delivery Mail
- unlike original products often complements pillows metal case;
- good seams on the slats attached to the beam.
- unstable quality;
- gum under the engine can burst after 1000 km.
Our rating is completed by the Russian-Belarusian-German concern, which began operations in 1989. Main specialization The company was the release of spare parts for VAZ cars. Company fast increased production turnover and increased sales due to shortage of goods in those days. Now it is a manufacturer who produces brake systems, shock absorbers, silent blocks, steering control, engine mounts and more. Products sold all over the CIS. To improve production were acquired Mori Seiki and Heller BEA machines requiring only a few person, which significantly reduced the number of marriage. Buyers share in reviews that when pillows are replaced vibration from the engine disappears, it gets easier to get started, because the grip is faster finds the optimum moment for pairing.
The products of this manufacturer are half the price of the original, for that brand and is rated. If you are currently limited finances, and the engine sagging to the stretcher no longer allows to operate the car, it is better to buy pillows of this brand, so as not to aggravate the condition of the motor. But how long will they last in time, depends on the weight of the power unit, features driving and pavement quality. It is advisable to choose this products for small ICE 1.2-1.5 liters.
