03 accord 4cyl auto
front and rear engine mounts.

my car was listed on one of the TSB's for excessive vibrations due to the mounts, so the new mounts are the updated ones right? i wouldnt be buying the "inferior" mounts that originally came in the 03?

Engine Vibrates While Idling In Gear
SYMPTOM
Excessive vibration is felt in the seat and steering
wheel when the transmission is put in Drive or
Reverse. The vibration may be worse in cold weather
or with loads, such as with the A/C on or when the
steering wheel is turned.

PROBABLE CAUSE
Not enough engine dampening.

CORRECTIVE ACTION
Based on the VIN, do either REPAIR PROCEDURE A
or REPAIR PROCEDURE B.

REPAIR PROCEDURE A:
Replace the front engine mount. Loosen and then
torque all engine mounting bolts.

REPAIR PROCEDURE B:
Replace the front engine mount, loosen and then
torque all engine mounting bolts, and install the
engine idle smoothing kit.

what is the engine idle smoothing kit?
(Kit contains 4 bolts, 2 lower radiator mounts, 2 upper
radiator mount washers, and 1 front bumper mass.)

Basically this kit installs a heavier front bumper mass to keep down engine vibration. There is also a PCM update if the car falls in the VIN range to help smooth out cold idle vibrations
