Motor mounts!

Just noticed today my motor mounts are done. Don't even know how it's still under the hood. Any tips on how to get it done in a timely manner?

As far as what? Motor mounts are stupid easy to do, undo the big nut under each of them that holds the mount to the K member, jack the motor up via the pan with a block of wood between the jack and the pan and support with jackstands. Then just remove each mount and replace with a new one, re-install the nuts once you drop the motor back down and you are good. Replace the grounding strap on the driver's side while you are at it.

Solid ones will transmit a lot of vibration. A lot of guys use the stock vert mounts. Energy suspension poly ones are good too. Watch out for Prothane ones, the Prothane mounts raise the motor up higher than stock which means you can run into driveline vibration issues.

I did end up going with the solid ones. Took about 45 minutes to replace with the help of my buddy. Vibrations not to bad. It's really only noticeable passed 4500 rpm, so while getting on the freeway you can definitely feel it. At lower rpms though it just sounds and feels like part of the exhaust. It spins both wheels more than before though, I noticed that while leaving for the test drive. When I can get the motor rebuilt though it will probably get the vert ones knowing what I know now. The solid ones were half the price though and at the time money was an issue. Appreciate the input
