    you can get it auto parts and stealerships. it usually take about 20 mins to change if you don't have frozen bolts. You need a jack, jack stands and piece of wood. Jack the car up and put it on jack stands. I normally just put one jack stand on one side of the car. you need enough clearance to put a jack underneath the tranny. Put the piece of wood on the top of the jack and align it so it will lift from one corner of the fluid pan. Do not put it in the middle area and specially if don't have a piece of wood. Before you jack the tranny up, in the middle of the tranny crossmember there is a nut. Take that nut out and get the bolts that hold the mount loose. Once the middle nut is loose you can jack the tranny up. Be careful to not jack it up too high and break something. If you can't get enough clearance to get the mount out you can remove the cross member. Make sure that you have the jack below the tranny before removing the cross member it has 2 bolts on each end of the crossmember.

    I also heard the tranny mounts of 93-97 fits the 98-02 and the are way more cheaper.

    also, if you wanted to go polyurethane, autozone sells the energy suspensions poly mount for $30.

    I vote to go with polyurethane. All my bushings are polyurethane and I've been happy with the results

    Don't alot of people say that if you are going to do the tranny poly mount you need to have the poly engine mounts too?

    Idk about that but I did, it made sense to me to have both the tranny and motor on the same mounts. There's hardly any movement in them makes driving it pretty nice cause the shifter stays nice and solid in your hand

    You don't have to. I run just the poly trans mount on both of our 4th gens.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for everyones help. I changed it in about 20 minutes. I went back with the stock mount. The car is basically stock and has 146000 miles on it and probably wont make it to 200000 before a rebuild. Next time I might upgrade to a stiffer part. No more bang when I pull out at over half throttle and no driveline vibrations. Third mount I have changed out of the 10 Camaros I have owned. Was about the same as the other two third generationmounts I have changed. Thanks again and hope everyone has a Happy Camaro New Year.
