Default Need help! TIA

I have been driving my Pontiac Bonneville 89 LE for awhile now, recently I had to change out the alternator which was easy enough. But on my way to get my battery and starter checked... I noticed that my car shook (sp?) everytime I had to start fast. So I talked to my dad, and had it checked, and sure enough it was the Motor and Transmition Mounts. So I got a quote on just the mounts for 120 and for the whole thing (installing them and everything) for 570. So my question goes: Is this something me and my father could do? About how long could it take? Anyone have any schematics, or instructions?

Thanks for any help, its appreciated.
Also what does LE stand for? Limited Edition?

From what my magic book says, that'* a good price for the mounts if it'* all of them. Just the main engine mount and bracket alone will normally run you 50-70 bucks.

I would buy them from your source, and do the work myself. You won't need a diagram. Just do a one for one swap all the way back.

Thanks alot for your replies! My dad told me he has a hydraulic jack... Is this sufficient? Also I have a hanes book telling me how to take the engine off... Will that be good enough?

Thanks you both for your relpies! I was about to pay someone 600 bucks to do it...
