    98 Eldorado replacing Engine Torque Mounts

    I am replacing both front torque mounts on my Eldorado. I purchased them from auto zone for $25.00 a piece. I noticed both front mounting brackets have elongated holes. Is there a adjustment when installing these or just tighten where they fall in place?

    Car in P on a level surface. With the dogbones removed, rock it back and forth using your knees against the front bumper to "normalize" the drivetrain cradle. Install new dogbones and adjust brackets if they wont 'drop right in".

    Advance prices are way better for mounts if buying local. Rockauto is dirt cheap for them, exact same parts BTW.

    Speaking of motormounts, who is it on this list that's rebuilding the front mount? I've got two loose ones to rebuild.
