Electronic engine mounts

What mileage do you guys have to replace you motor mounts? I have a 2K max with 120K miles and I have to replace 3 of my mounts(the front and rear electric ones and the passenger side engine one). My car was in an an accident where the passenger fender was hit and the body shop didn't replace that mount and i'm guessing that the front and rear mount died because they had more stress on them because of the bad passenger side mount. Their expensive over $500. I see online(at nissanparts2u) that I can just buy the insulator(?)(which is the circular part of the mount) part for less. Can i do that to just repair the mount?

Std mounts; enough for normal use:
One link example, 70-100$, see http://www2.partstrain.com/store/index.php?Ntt=Engine%20Mount&N=11369+1684+4294964741+11921
Should be ok at least for 150k/10 yrs. Depends how u beat the max... One may test stiffen some types which are semi open by filling the openings.

I know the front and rear mounts have sensors cause they use fluid to stiffen the mounts thats why their not available aftermarket. the link you posted i doubt that i can use it, i know it'll probably fit but i'll just probably have a check engine light on or i've read on maximadotorg that the car wont start without the sensors.

Cant believe that. Check what happens by tst disconnecting the plugs. The mounts contain an 'actuator' stiffening the mounts based on rpm. Refer to manual page EC-720. Thus no sensors; ECM might detect missing actuator resistance however (hoax with a 5c resistor having same resistance value (maybe 50ohms ?) or leave ol mounts connected?)
