Default 2k+ solid motor mount

I need input from each of you that have done this.

Parts, procedures, and pics if you have them. This is for a Techinfo article.

What are the advantages of doing this?
I can see the purpose on a suped up RWD, but is this really necessary on a FWD?
Would this have any effect on torque steer?
What about vibration?

Hi , i made the first solid mount for the 2000+ Bonneville. Have over 80,000 miles on it with NO complaints.
go outside, lift the hood, rock the car(back and forth) in park, see all that movement
that is not good for all the fule lines, electrical lines, exhaust pipe so on and so on.
it will also help the torque steer. it will help put the power to the ground.

taken straight from the post...

jack car up, put jack stand under the engine/tranny and set jack back down... slightly.. enought to take tension off the mount... take off 3 bols on the mount, and 1 on the bottom, and remove all together

I used the same three hockey pucks, but also a 1/2" thick piece of rubber (that I cut out with a 3" hole saw) on top of them, and a 12" piece of 1/2" threaded rod (allthread), two nuts, two large washers, and a lockwasher. Same procedure.

I can't really say that I noticed much more preformance, but I can say that it made my steering clunk more... It does squeel the tires alot easier than before, so I know it'* putting power down quicker. The ride doesn't seem any rougher, and when I turn corners, it does feel like there'* more available power. I need to check the allthread, just to make sure that it hasn't stretched any, but it'* too damn cold here to be working on a car outside.
