Yea, place a 2x4 on the jack and use the oil pan for support while you change the mounts.

Knowing what you know now, would it have been easier to take the manifolds off? Assuming that everythings not totally rusted together downstream.

It would be easier if someone else took the headers off, and for free The real PITA were the tranny lines being in the way. If you took the headers off it would be sad putting them back on without sending them to the machine shop.

I didn't have any problems with the exhaust. Even the tranny lines weren't a big deal for me.

Yep, I'm planning on replacing the intake manifold/gaskets while I'm doing the mounts, so looks like I've got a full weekend ahead of me, based on the reaction to the mounts............

Well my exhaust manifolds might be coming off soon for something a little more... fun. Might as well do them both at once if it's easier... Make a weekend project out of it.

Yeh, I did the rear main, tranny mount, and plenum at the same time, so my idea of easy might be a little off.

Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but it totally inspired me! Maybe some of the newer guys can cruise through this and get some ideas/share.

I'm mostly interested in the OBA and actually the extra cupholder mods here!

Just wondering why something like this isn't a sticky to continue to add?
