XD I was actually gonna tell the guy "a friend from the internet told me you need to take the 2 bolts out of the rack but I thought the problem was the DP not letting the motor go high enough for him to work on that final mount. It wast till I heard a "finally! All I needed was those 2 damned bolts" is when I'm like "isn't that what boost said" lmao

Maybe they forgot to put a plastic shield back in place. Go out, start the car, turn the wheel all the way to the right, and look for anything that might be rubbing the tire.

Also, please use caution using language on here please. Thx

Well.. see both my suggestions were pretty much on the money. If you can't lift the motor, and know that the mount is bolted to the trans and subframe, obviously the trans has been unbolted. If you can't move the motor up, then move the frame where the mount sits down. Seems logical when you aren't the one fighting.

Part of my motto. When something fights, step bac and look at it from many different angles. You will likely see an easier way.
