Default passenger side engine mount RE & RE

So im at the collision shop today, and my mechanic is there
i mention that when i accelerate hard the car feels wonky.

pop the hood...spark up the car.... put in drive(with foot on brake)...give some gas...

yup the mount is worn ...not broke but very worn.

looking for suggestions for replacement for this mount...
checked energy suspension and they dont even think my car exists

also was looking for the thread on the ruberized mount from the heavy duty machinery thread for the trans....i think im interested in one of those.

i hope this isnt a duplicate post or in the wrong area
if so please move and accept my appologies

thanks in advance for the help guys
is it a one person job or is it going to be a nightmare?

Ok..the mount right in front of your water pump or the one below that is attached to your transmission?

Also.. are your other mounts still good? The ones on the front and back of the trans?

its the big round one with the bolt though the middle. i think its the one i need 275 different extentions to get at.
it looks like its attached to the engine ( re reading this thread you wouldnt know i worked at a jobber and dealership for en yrs would ya?)


havent crawled underneath yet to look was going to do that on sat.
do you know the thread i was talking about with the rubberized metal block?

Is this the thread you were thinking of from the 2000+ section?

archon unfortunetly that is not the post i am thinking of
this one had pics and the guy works with industrial machinery its something that he uses at work to minimize vibration in the floor of the bldg.
the post had pics too

it looked like solid square stock with a rubber coating, he used it for trans mount instead of hockey puck.

That won't work for the torque axis mount on a 92-99. The 2000'* have a different mount setup.

Also, I doubt your TA mount is the actual problem. I think you're just seeing the symptom there.

Check the mount at the front of the trans on the driver'* side. Look straight down between the fan and exhaust manifold. If that one cracks or breaks (very common), it will let the torque axis mount flex more.

I'm also wondering about the rear transmission mount. While tougher to see and diagnose..IIRC BW told me that it can contribute a lot of movement in the motor and is usually found after the other mounts are ruled out.

crappy weather...still did not get underneath the car...checked what looks like a shock absorber on the front drivers side...it is looking worn

still have to get under the car...maybe today...if the rain holds off

on a side note i got the K&N air filter in so the mods have started!!!!

are there other causes of the car getting wonky under hard acceleration?
