3.6118 Energy Suspension Radiator Isolator Pad
The 3.6118 Energy Suspension Radiator Isolator Pad Set helps protect the radiator and keep its place. The pads that come from this kit help keep the radiator secure when a vehicle passes over rough roads, bumps, or anything that could make the vehicle shake. Since these polyurethane pads are made out of a stronger material than the originals, they will have a stronger hold on the radiator.
If these isolator pads break, the radiator could rattle under the hood and collide with other surrounding parts, possibly causing it to crack and leak fluid. The price for replacing a radiator depends on the model of the vehicle but can average out to about $700 meanwhile the cost to buy and replace the pads would be about $20 plus labor if you took them to a garage. This doesn't include the damage that the radiator can cause to other engine components by rattling around.
Which is Better?
These pads are made out of a more resilient and long-lasting material known as polyurethane which is more durable and is not affected by engine chemicals unlike rubber. Poly has a longer natural lifespan than rubber by an estimated 20-30 years. Polyurethane is not as soft as rubber which means that it does not absorb as much vibrations going up to the driver. However, since these are made of a sturdier material, they will keep the radiator more secure than rubber.
So, if you would like to find a way to keep your radiator secure and safe under your hood, get a 3.6118 Energy Suspension Radiator Isolator Pad Set soon!
