    yea i did the headers at the same time as the mounts.....the headers actually went in with no problems after i put the poly mounts on...before, no such luck.

    I guess I got lucky with my poly mounts. I didnt remove the pedestals and they aligned perfectly.

    did you have to remove anything else in the process? also what brand? I'm looking to pick some up before I swap my headers in this weekend

    Make sure you mark the two halves of the clamshell so you put them back together correctly. My mounts were so dryrotted that after splitting them the rubber fell out. Sjsingle1 has some great pics in his thread: header install in pics

    chances are, most people's stock mounts look like this, even when they say "oh theyre still good, no need to replace".

    A good tip that I figured out when I was changing mine...
    I had a whale of a time trying to get the big long bolts back through. The motor had to be twisted some to get them to line up right. Rather than prying, I took a ratchet strap and hooked to a point on the motor and then to another point on the frame and just kept ratcheting unti I got them to slip right in. It sure made it easy to do it myself with just the two hands i had on me.
