Imma get a shop to do it. Only have 1 floor jack & 2 jack stands. Don't wanna risk getting crushed by a car knowing my luck.

Ordered the mount & bolt. Guy in parts showed me the difference & it is obvious between the 2.

Also, you will have to support the engine with at least one jack near the mount, so that when you remove the mount itself the engine is still being supported.
Yeah... you don't have to support the engine. It's not going anywhere.

You saw it cuz I tapped it

The rear motor mount does not support the engine. Meaning you will be able to pull the stock mount and replace it without needing anything. Just pull the cover under the engine off and go at it :thumbup:

Yep!
I'm not sure if I did it wrong, but I had to pull both brackets (the rear motor mount and the bracket it connects to). If I tried to just pull the mount without disconnect the arm/bracket it didn't fit from what I could tell.
You'll know what I mean when you're down there.

Quite a simple install, 20minutes if you're fast, an hour if you're slow and take your time.

Just wanted to pop in and say I picked up the Steeda RMM today. I swapped the 77 durometer urethane inserts with the stiffer 88 durometer inserts. There are a lot of vibrations in the car at idle and coming off idle into 1st gear, with a little extra throttle though this solves some of the more severe vibrations, for most I would recommend staying with the 77 durometer inserts.

This is with the 88 inserts in.
