    Motor mounts

    Do I have to change the PS when I change the DS? I already changed out my Tranny mount and that stop a good amount of the exhaust banging but it still has some. My engine also has like a clunk clunk sound (only does it 2 times and only when I give it some gas when Im at a stop.) Ill get a video tomorrow if swapping the motor mount doesnt fix it.

    But ya, do I have to swap the PS mount too.
    also sorry, is there a good write up of how to do it fairly simple?

    you should do it on both sides.

    here's a half ass short version of a write up:

    support the engine under the oil pan with a Jack and a piece of wood to spread out the weight.

    remove the starter

    unbolt the air conditioning unit AND bracket. no easy way to do this it sucks.

    un bolt PS motor mount bolt

    unbolt alternator

    unbolt DS motor mount bolt.

    the rest I have no idea because I installed poly MM while doing a K member swap.....

    good luck and get used to creating new combinations of curse words..

    Do one side at a time. This will keep the engine from moving side to side and getting out of place, and yeah, do both sides. Your welcome.

    it's not so much the manifolds that make it difficult, it's the k member. you have to be some kind of a contortionist to be able slip your hands in there to get the mounts off. to bad it's a pain in the ass to drop the k because it makes it so much easier to change the MM

    The clunk sound may be u joints since it's happening when you take off.
