    I have replaced my SL1 96 upper motor mount with an after market part.
    Since the motor mount was badly collapsed, I couldn't compare it with the
    new one. The bolt holes ligned up but the bracket dimensions differed
    making me wonder if the engine was on the same level it should be
    originally. I'm concerned if there's a discrepancy on the tolerances, is
    there a possibility any moving parts could be damaged? The car is running
    great right now, but I want to avoid any future damage this may cause. Any
    input on this will be welcome!

    Nope you should be good to go. You can have someone hold the brake, put
    it in gear, and then watch the engine rock back as a load is put on it.

    Didn't someone post that the aftermarket was a thinner or lighter mount than
    the factory's?
