I just replaced my upper engine mount. While I was at it, installed new plugs and ipd sway bar bushings. Was a great afternoon project for me and my 12 year old son. Thanks to Swedespeed and the freakin awesome advice, posts and pics on this forum, it went off without a hitch <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>In any case, since I bought another full OEM mount (not just the bushing), I have the old one available. The bushing itself is shot, but I know some of you with the "square" housings like to retrofit to "round," so let me know if you want it. <p>I don't mind shipping it within the US. It'll just cost you whatever it costs me to ship it to you.

I don't have a stockpile, in fact it was tough getting one for someone last Friday.<br>Most mounts have been replaced by now and the old round ones go into the trash.<br>There still are a couple around so if anyone wants one, you need to let me know ASAP.<br><B>As I tell everyone, $25 shipped, (they're a bit heavy)</B><br>I make all of maybe $10 on these not including my time (and gas) to get them, box them, go to UPS, etc.

Does anyone have an OEM mount (square or round) that is in good shape they would part with?
