    Not many need the whole works. I think the left motor mounts may urge you to go by the book... Got a shop manual?

    Re: motor and trans mounts

    The motor mounts and trans mounts are actually pretty straight forward. For the motor mounts, it says you need to remove the exhaust manifold to get the drivers side out, but I think someone else said they were able to get it off without doing that. And the passenger side should be really quick. The trans is pretty much a cross brace with the mounts attached. If I remember correctly, it is four bolts that hold the cross brace in and two bolts that hold it to the trans.

    This all assumes you have RWD. Not sure if you have AWD.
