Aftermarket parts with rubber in them, or especially primarily rubber, seem to come from India a lot more often

Remember that ACDelco Professional =/= GM OE


I went to ACDelco's website and the only upper strut mount they list for the application is ACDelco Professional 901-045.

On some other parts I can get ACDelco OE, but on that particular part, it's Professional series only.

Genuine GM mounts are available, but the price is double. I figured I'd give ACDelco a try before I go that route.


A few weeks ago I needed to order some GM OE motor mounts for my truck. We all know OE motor mounts are better than aftermarket so that's the route I took. I didn't want to pay $$$ for the part or shipping so I did some searching. The GM parts website, gmpartsgarage.com is run by a GM dealership in NJ. They had a free shipping weekend for Mother's Day so I was able to get the mounts for cheaper than even from Rock Auto.

They currently have a Memorial Day free shipping sale going on until the 31st. ACDelco Professional 901-145 cross references to an OE part number of 19294105. GM Parts Garage has it for $61 and they don't charge tax. Use coupon code MAYDAY for free shipping.

The correct GM part number is 19208376. Your guys have it for $96.73. I'll probably be wishing I got those.

For that kind of money, they'd have to be made in USA I would think. Thanks for the keyboard work. thumbsup

I've have wrenches made in India in the 1970s that are very good---and had (past tense!) similar looking ones made there in the 1980s that were pretty bad. They are inconsistent, like stuff from China or USA.

Anybody notice that a lot of manhole covers are from India?

I would hope that wherever a big name brand like ACdelco is getting their products made, that they're requiring the facilities to follow established ISO quality standards and using quality raw materials. After all, AC's on the hook for comebacks and their reputation is likewise on the line

That said, we're going to see more and more products sourced from places like India as labour and material costs continue to rise in China.

How so? I mean it seems either holds or it doesn't.



The made in India wrenches either slipped or would not fit.

Have you seen them try to make hand tools? They're horrid.

I remember about 10+ years ago bought India made Harbor Frieght wrenches. One broke when using and part of it went flying past my head. Went to Lowes and bought Kobalt set that day. Not sure what quality is like now.


I think the HF combination wrenches are still made in India . I have at least 2 sets of both metric & SAE . One at home & one on the truck . I have had no complaints about them .

Catch a set on sale for ~ $ 7 and they are cheap enough , if I loose or hide one from myself , no big deal .

At my age , I might break a tool , but doubt I will wear ir out .

As far as parts made in India ? If it is not made in USA , I pretty much groop them together .

ACDelco Advantage is bottom of the barrel close to white box quality.

ACDelco Professional is average aftermarket quality.

ACDelco OE is original equipment quality.

ACDelco Specialty is for heavy duty stuff like police brakes and so on.

https://www.acdelco.com/gm-original-equipment-parts/gm-oe-products.html

As far as being made in India goes, India and Thailand are huge rubber producers so its probably cheaper just to produce the part there instead of shipping the raw material to other countries to be molded. All other COO arguments aside it probably doesn't make any difference at all or if it was made by Elon Musk on Mars by little green helpers packing the stuff as it comes off the automated production line.
