Yeah I can't wrench well enough yet for a DIY on this one. Plus I'm getting the SSK installed, having my belts replaced, and an oil change so I'm having my mechanic do it all for me. He's done it all before many times, has all the necessary tools, and gets paid to be patient with my car. So I'm gonna just watch and learn during the pain-in-the-ass parts.

Rogue has a great selection of products, but recently their bushings and mounts have been excellent recently. I highly recommend Rogue for the products they put out. Here's the tranny mounts you'll need:

I used an open end wrench with some gloves and used my fingers to break bolts loose. Might be a little tough but gloves and a cold exhaust definitely help.

I honestly don't remember... but it can't have been that hard, or I would remember

The UUC ones much be harder, as they have noticeably more noise/harshness/vibration. The REs are fairly indistinguishable from stock, other than less tranny movement.

To break those nuts on top of the tranny mounts was hell. I used a box wrench and literally all my strength it came loose after about 30 tries.

Sounds like it's going to be a pain to bust those nuts. These RE tranny mounts keep taunting me when I look at them, so it's going to be time to get crackin' soon enough.

If it makes you feel any better, I had absolutely no trouble with the nuts and I'm a rather novice mechanic. All you need is a small box wrench.

The first set of my tranny mounts broke so I still have to do mine as well. Just to damn lazy to jack up the car.
