i do and it was hard. if you have access to a lift or if you aren't afraid to take the subframe and the engine out, do so!

i didn't and it is a monumental pain to get everything lined up right. took a few hours to get all of the bolts in there lined up and ratched in due to limited space

Shit......was it worth it? I mean, I assume you had the other three in already. Was there a noticeable difference after you installed the front?

I just ordered the set of three.........wondering if I should just install those.

Amazing... Took me about 3 hours for all three and I didn't touch the subframe for the rear one. Only bitch was getting the three-bolt flange lined up. I used a length of wooden 1" X 2" to lever it into place while I threaded the final bolt in. Wish I could've been there to help out you guys who stripped stuff or had to resort to the subframe.

what did you do instead of dropping subframe, its been over a year since I did my inserts so Im trying to remember what exactly i did and I have the set w/ the front mount now ready to be put in when I have the time but which order did you do them in, I assume you just undid that rear mount bolt and jacked the engine up in combination with using something for leverage.

Yes, and I pulled the header and cat, which is quite easy. IMO, the most important thing when doing the rear mount is to make sure that your jack and block of wood are positioned immediately in front of the rear mount when you lift. This puts your balance point in line with that mount, which means that nothing wants to shift to one side. Once I had the main through-bolt out, that rear mount practically fell out into my hands, and I had zero problems aligning it on the way back in.

There are three prerequisites needed for this project that will save you lots of frustrationan: Air tools, a long 17mm impact socket for pointed studs on the left and right mounts, and several blocks of wood and dowels/ lengths of 1X2 available. Best of luck.

see, i can't say for sure because i did all 4 at once. I DO know that my front one was almostly completely useless (there are 4 rubber points that stretch out in an X pattern in the mount and 3 of the 4 were completely ripped off and the 4th was torn and on its way). Was it worth it? I think so because the main problem I was having was that the engine was rocking back and forth and I wanted more security for when I drag race or auto-x. If you don't EVER beat on your car, then I'm sure you can not do the front.

i did neither but i did ended up leaving a bolt out on the front and on the rear. i'll put them in before winter probably but the engine is still really solid in there.

I am about to do this job.

What sizes of "blocks of wood" are you referring to? And by dowels, do you mean something wooden to align the bolt holes?

Thanks!

No, fool, just some pieces of wood. I never measured mine, just a bunch of pieces of different sizes laying around. 2X4's, pieces of ply, some solid chunks. Whatever you can find. The dowels are for levers. Use a big screwdriver to line up holes.

He's referring to resetting the auto window feature after disconnecting and reconnecting the battery.

Those of you that installed the mounts - what did you do with the wire (ground?) that attaches to the p/s OEM mount?

You have to pull the door side panel and press the window up with your hands for two seconds to re-teach the ECU where the up position is. This is why yuou should never disconnect your battery under any circumstances.
