    Why wont my prothane mounts line up!!!

    Trying to put my engine back on the k member and the motor wounts will not line up with the bolt holes on the k member!!! I can get the bolt in on either side but when I go to put the opposite side in, it's about 1/4 to 1/2 inch off :ak: I'm getting really pissed off so if anyone could help ease my frustration that would be awesome Thanks!

    I feel your pain, I had alignment issues as well. Due to the tight mount fitment in the shell, its gonna take some prying with a BIG pry-bar and some patience.

    I finally got them in! It took about 3 hours and im so sore from having to twist and pry and bend and reach haha. I'm kinda pissed about the fitment but I think If i'd have let them soak in hot water for a while maybe they would have been more pliable...? It was a good workout though
