Mine are not too bad. Just starting to notice more movement. I did the rear mount a few years ago because of how easy it is. The main two are a bear.

Got my tool yesterday. Hook up was pretty straight forward.
Question: I can see where the power steering rack is connected to the engine support cradle.
Did you loosen/unhook the power steering rack before you undid the four engine support bolts?

Thanks. I was doing this mostly cause I wanted to fix my leaky oil pan gasket. BUT I think I should hold off til I get some new motor mounts as well.

My fear is that If I support the engine from above and lower the engine cradle (after removing the four motor mount bolts first), that my engine mounts might be busted and come apart when I lower the engine cradle. Is my fear warranted?

Just power brake the car in forward and reverse with the hood open to see if you have engine movement. Btw don't forget to put on the e brake for safety.
