Ok people this is my 1st time doing a how to so bare with me:

Tools you need
*18mm socket wrench
*one C-clamp
*all though if you have a press i HIGHLY recommend you use it..lol
*2 jacks

this is for the front tranny mount:
1st jack up the car, then with the other jack, jack up the tranny just a tiny bit..

now theres gonna be 4 bolts your gonna be removing, the first one is as shown..


then remove the second bolt which is on the opposite side of the mount


after you get that done, look above the bushing and theres gonna be 2 bolts where my finger is pointed


the mount should slide right off as soon as you get all 4 bolts removed and it should look like this



now here comes the pain in the ass part...if you have access 2 a press then no problem but if you dont heres where the C clamp come in, put the mount on a surface where the bushing will be over the air, then put the clamp on the center of the bushing now start tightening the clamp until the bushing pops out...



when the bushing pops out then reverse the steps to put the new bushing in, same with the mounting of the tranny mount and it should look like this..



this is the first part of the how to, i dont have the second mount on yet but when i do ill finish off the how to...like i said before this is my first how to, if i made any mistakes on the instructions then let me know

so I need to install these, steering rack spacers and control arm bushings. Since all my money is going to a jet ski and supercharger, I can't really afford to pay a shop. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so damn cold, once again though excellent write up

thanx man, doing it yourself might take forever but 2 pros 2 doing it yourself are you save money and you get to take pride in saying that you did it
