    I just replace my rear mounts today. To get it lined back up I had to loosen the front ones, so I figured I would take the bottom washer off and see how the looked. This is what they look like. I would imagine they are toast, or is ther supposed to be play in there?

    They are supposed to look like that the space between the bolt mount and the body of the bushing is normal.......but........ if you have gone so far as to pop the nuts and washers why not toss a new pair in there? The OE ones are pricey but ask your local parts guy if they have ATRO brand mounts, they are neoprene and will last way longer than the old rubber mounts and are about a 1/3 of the price. I'll be at work in an hour, i'll post the part number for you.

    Atro part number for the front motor mounts KT59-62002, Standens is a stocking supplier for these mounts in Canada, I'm not sure about the US. The only downside of this style of mount that i've heard back is you may feel a bit more vibration front the mounts being that much stiffer than the OE rubber, but the longevity, savings in cost, time wasted changing will offset the downside.
