i would do both. normally go out the same time and you will have access to the tools. the biggest pain to me is getting the plastic cup out, you have to beat it with a punch from the back without destroying the cv boot

These tips will help Thanks! I will study the FSM as well before I do this job.
If I need help or get stuck, I will have an ACE mechanic there, but he dont like doing my work, when I am only giving him beer money for the lift. >LOL
Depending on the day, he may limit my time to complete, so even though I will order both bearings, I may only have time to do the motor mount & currently bad singular bearing.

good luck art!, just remember to do the press out technique if it wont pull out. last thing you wanna do is add heat. id be afraid of melting the cv boot with how close it is. also, it helps to turn the wheel all the way so when you push the axle back to gain access to those 13mm bolts it presses against the knuckle and dont just slide back into its home.

one other useful tip, 6 point socket and 3/8" drive. half inch wont fit, and a 12 pt will round it off in a hurry with the angle you will have to get on it.

I got that mount on Ebay for $28, took 10 minutes to swap in my 98 ultra. It'* 2 bolts, easy as pie. Also, I added a torque mount to my pau to help limit movement.
