I think that the spot the bolts come out depend on your transmission and engine combo. Mine is an auto (32RH) and 4L.
No matter the mounting hole, you should check that
1. Yes you do have a transmount and that the bushing is in good working order and the studs are not stripped.
2. Your torque arm is in good working order and the bushings are not smashed from over tightening.
3. Your cat or parts of the exhaust are not smacking the skid plate.
I would pull the plate off and check it out. You can see where the parts are coliding with the plate because you will see a wear spot on the underside of the plate.
I have my skid plate off right now while I'm replacing the trans pan gasket to a FelPro brand, so I will try and snap some pics and post them here to see if that helps.
