doing the dog bone will make the most noticeable difference the other two will make a improvement still but will transfer much more vibration/ noise to your cockpit also if you do the other two do them both the same so as not to try to dampen at different levels and put stuff in a bind

Making sure I have the right Prt numbers:

DOGBONE BUSHINGS: Prothane 6-502BL or energy suspension 4.1123r

Is there a part number for the driver's and passenger side mount bushing? Or am I stuck having to buy a complete assembly for each side from FSwerks or CFM or massive?

There is no replacement bushings for the pass or drivers mounts. You'll end up replacing the whole mount assembly whether oem or aftermarket, rubber bushed or poly bushed. If you order off any of the above sites then you shouldn't have a issue w/ part #'s. Just punch up the yr & motor you have.

I am just going to replace the bushings in my dogbone. Probably start collecting dogbones, blasting them, powdercoating them, putting some poly bushings in and reselling. Gotta fund that turbo.

Thats for the dogbones only. The passenger & driver side mounts, you can't just replace the bushings. You have to buy new ones.

I need to replace my reverse switch, so might as well upgrade the trans mount w/ a vf engineering one.

Is the install for the dogbone as unpleasant as I'm imagining it?
