If you are talking about the two Dogbones attached above the radiator, all you have to do is replace them one at a time... It would be a help to have a second set of hands to yank the engine foward a little as you reinstall the last bolt into the mounting location... Hell you can do them both at the same time if you like... It'll only take a few minutes...
Almost forgot to tell you... The fluid filled mount that sits under the dront of the oil pan is proned to leaking all of the fluid out with age... Thats a fun mount to replace too
Yes, they attach between the radiator and the front of the engine. If all I have to do is replace them one at a time then that'* is good news
Thanks Don! I will check on the fluid filled mount as well. Let'* hope it'* still in good shape
Jason, not too sure. I may have just struts, but it bounces like hell at the back. I'd have to check on that.
EDIT: Forgot, I have FE1 suspension, which I believe is soft ride...so whatever that entails, that'* what I have.
