you need new motor mounts. Replace both of them and the trans mount while you're at it.

Have you checked the tranny mount? Looks like it must have broke to be that far off.

All you need are hand tools and a floor jack.

Do it yourself, I've done many 6 cylinder mounts.

I usually start with the passenger side, and I do one side at a time, and I start by just loosening the large "main bolt" that runs through the motor mount and then leaving it in place, then I remove the bolt & nut that attach the motor mount to the frame, next I use a jack & block of wood on the oil pan and just take the weight off of the mount. Lastly I remove all the bolts that attach the engine mount bracket to the engine block & pull the bracket & mount out as 1 piece & swap the mount on the bench.

When I reinstall the first new mount, the only bolts I tighten are the bolts that secure the bracket to the engine. The remaining bolts are left loose after getting the threads started. This allows the engine to flex around a bit more while doing the second mount.

Make sure to DOUBLE-CHECK all bolts to make sure they're tight when done!

When you change your tranny mount, check the bracket that mounts to the trans and t/c, a lot of them crack and or break, that could be your problem, also check the trans torque bolt and bushings, they break also, looks like these 2 things are likely your problem and could have caused your motor mounts to go.....
