|Magus2727||Passenger is a little more involved then just 2 bolts. Unless the SVT is that much different on the passenger side, there are a few covers and brackets you have to remove. Coolant tank is also usually removed (but not unhooked). Should have stickies...|

|whynotthinkwhynot||You use a block of wood to span the oil pan so the weight is distributed on the sides. That's given in every manual. I prefer plywood myself, but if your jack's saddle is big enough then you can use a 2x4. You should do the same thing for the transmission- it is not wise to jack up on cast aluminum without having wood in there to absorb the hardness of the saddle.|

|whimsicalpouch2||isn't it bad to lift the engine by putting a jack on the oil pan? wouldn't that crush it and make me get a new oil pan??|

|whynotthinkwhynot||Jack under the trans for the trans mount, and under the oil pan for the front engine (passenger side) mount. Just make sure that you are not putting your mount bolt in a bind when tightening. You will damage things if you pull the motor up to the mount with the bolt(s).|

|whimsicalpouch2||i'm not worried about vibrations, i like the stiff ride my car already has and the vibrations won't affect me|

|whimsicalpouch2||would a jack under the transmission be able to hold the engine in place while i would do the upper trans mount then followed by the passenger mount?|

From our vendor Central Florida Motorsports.
They warn you that poly mounts will cause vibration and are race only, however, I have poly mounts on my engine and I don't think the vibrations are all that bad. Yes, it does vibrate at idle, but as long as you do the mount installation correctly- it's not horrible. As soon as you give the car some gas- no more vibration. Acceleration is more immediate.

|whimsicalpouch2||where can i get the new bushings for the 2 mounts?|
|02-08-2013 04:25 PM|
Pressing the new bushings in however is a bit difficult. you may need some sort of press to do it.
