On a side note, has anyone else had this issue? Whenever I start my car, it sounds like the mount is rattling against something, metal on metal. I put the MS3 bolt in it yesterday, same thing. We took the mount out, and the portion that faces the rear of the vehicle has a lip on it, and it was contacting the metal inside the subframe. We had to machine the lip down a bit to get it to stop hitting. No more noise, but I don't think I saw anyone else with this issue.

P.S. If the parts people know what they're doing, they can find the part. It makes it easier if they have the VIN, but it's not completely necessary.
Thank you for confirming that. I'm going to call back and order it today.
