Had to be there. I've experienced the same broken mount in 3 H bodies in the last year. Telltale.

I will probably try to do it myself this weekend then, doesn't sound too hard. Just have to find a garage to work in. I've got the heater and propane tank.
When we did one at my place recently, we didn't need the car on ramps..but it wouldn't hurt. It'll take you longer to heat the garage then it will to change the mount.

BTW.. there was a technique to turning the mount the right ways and it came out the top.

BWren... you take them out the top as well, right?

92/93 would be easier out the top than 94/95.

Mine and John'* went out the bottom, but we had to do the rear mount on both cars also. So we were under the car anyway.

In case you're curious, I can get the part for $36.99. The shop (local tire store) wants $66 for the part and $35 for installation. I think I'd pay $35 to have it installed, but I'm not going to pay double the price for the part.

Another good reason to do it yourself or at least get someone to help you.
