    I went with the Prothanes and am very pleased! there is a little bit more noise, but not bad, much better than the stock ones.

    i just got my prothane motor an tranny mounts in. already have LT installed. has anybody switched out the motor mounts with out having to take back off the LTs. Somebody said if you remove the alternator you can work from there. Dreading the process.

    ? on motor mounts front plate style

    I believe my stock motor mounts may need replaceing.

    what about the third option the front of motor plate style.

    is this strickly for racing?

    I understand that it's a major PITA to install stock or solid motor mount so looking at the plate stlye seams much easier?

    also doe's the old stock motor mounts have to be removed or can they be left on and just slap on the plate stlye.

    I'll try to post a image of the third type mount.

    Lastly I understand that the driver side is where most of the torque ends up anyone here just replaceing the stock rubber w/ polyuronthen just on drivers side?

    Thanks

    well i dont think you can buy just one so you might as well put them both on. i still have to do mine and dreading it, but its a days worth of work and ill never have to do it again. thats the way i look at it. if you got stock exhaust still on then it will be easyer for you.

    the plate's are alot more work then you are thinking of you have to trim and weld them in plus space all the front drive stuff to match up.

    And this is why I love my GTO.
    Took alittle over an hour from start to finish including actually fabing up my new solid mounts and the swap... Didn't have to remove anything, just put car on jack stands, unbolted the mounts, used the floor jack with a piece of wood on it under the pan and the mounts slid right out
