Default Need Motor Mounts! Im scared!

WHen taking off from a dead stop the car will make a little clunk noise and i thought it was a little play in the transmission.. but i thought i would pop the hood and do the rocking test... and sure enough my motor mounts are bad.. not 100% which ones..pretty sure the front one is but cant see the rears that well..

How hard is this to do? Im nervous

Ouch. Yea, they are a PITA IMO, except for the dogbone on the trans. The big one on the passenger side can be hard to get out because of the 2 15mm bolts on the underside of the bracket.

The front trans mount isn't that bad either. 2 bolts on the trans and 3 on the frame.

The rear trans mount is another story. 3 on the trans and 3 on the frame. The 3 to the trans are difficult to get to because of the steering rack.

Your gonna need some swivels, pry bars, floor jack or engine hoist(to take weight off).
To get the 2 15mm bolts on the big mount, you will need a 15mm open end and another open end to extend the first wrench. Its a definite knuckle buster doing this, but sockets will not fit in that spot. Unless Boosty knows another way.
