    I took the weight off the mounts by jacking up the motor from the forward edge of the oil pan (where it's the strongest). Never tried freeze off.

    not sure if it would reach, but you could try an extra long (12-18") drill bit and maybe an extender to drill the head off the bolt. Chances are you wouldnt get the stud out afterwards, but whats worse, running 3 bolts on both drivers side and passenger side, or two different MMs?

    Something like this:

    Thanks for the tip--I'll see what I can do.

    As a quick thank you to those of you who helped, I snapped a quick pic when the sun popped out:



    Filthy as it is, it's amazing how hard it is to make these cars look bad. Also, even with one Creative Steel motor mount, the throttle response is significantly better. Much crisper, although I'm definitely feeling some NVH due to its 87A hardness. When/if these mounts crap out, I'll definitely switch to 80A Revshift motor mounts. Shame that they didn't pay a bounty for their competitors' products.

    Also, I installed the Addco 2290 front sway bar--it's a BEAST. Coming from the Hotchkis sway bar (which is already pretty stiff), I was impressed by how super flat the body stayed through 1 G+ corners. Unfortunately, the clearance between the Addco 2290 and the FG2 shock body is nearly zero. Here's to hoping that the KW Variant 3 shock body isn't thicker. If it is, I'm going to have to go back to the Hotchkis.
