Transmission mount replacement help

I ordered a new transmission mount because I've been having problems with my transmission moving around and clunking on acceleration from time to time.

Mean Max made a great write up with pics:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/t...cement-903109/

However I was under my YJ and it looks like my transmission mount is farther back than What'sWrong's Jeep. If you follow the pictures in that thread, mine mounts up inside that square cut out behind where his mounts.

I have the same transmission mount they used in the thread. Is this normal and am I going to be able to use the transmission mount?

I think What'sWrong's Jeep is a 4cyl. the 6 mounts further back. Also make sure you have the torque arm mount as well.

Exactly, the 4 cylinder mounts in the holes closer to the front of the jeep in the skid plate, the six cylinder uses the holes closer to the rear of the jeep. The skid plate was built for both 4 and 6 cylinders, depending on which transmission, ax5 or ax15 will determine which holes the mounting bolts will drop through as the the torque arm brackets are different for each application.

Ok, thanks for the help.

I overlooked the torque arm mounts. Is it important to replace these kind of things together?

Actually, What'sWrong's Jeep is a 4.0L, but it's an automatic. That just makes the bracket a little different. The tranny mount should be the same for all 4 & 6 cylinder, manual & auto models, with the bracket being different to accomodate the different needs.

Yes, replace the isolator (torque arm) bushings if you can get them before you start the job. However, they can be replaced later without dropping the skid plate.

While we are on the subject here. I have the torque arm bushings but the isolator stub and all the other bolts and washers are long since gone. Anyone know where I can pick one of these up?
