I heard that horrendous clunk and was sure I'd broke something expensive. I found an OEM GM mount 15820075 on Ebay for $18.92 w shipping. There was almost no slop in the bolt holes, so I didn't have to leave the mount loose when I installed the crossmember. The old one fell apart just like your's when I removed it. Success!!! Full throttle launch with no clunk when it upshifts!!! Great video! Thanks!

I was actually here to see the driver's side mount put in.

after raising the trans. and removing the old mount, do you have to move the trans. up or down or horizontally to re-align the trans to the sub-frame so that the new mounts can fit into all holes for the nut engagement.

in michigan, it rains rust when you're up under these vehicles. Always use a mask also so you don't eat rust.

I know I'm years late but this is the best video on how to do this. Everything is pretty much self explanatory. The only issue I'm having is I'm a bit confused as to where to put the jack. I know traditionally you put the jack under the oil pan with a piece of wood between the oil pan and jack. However when you showed underneath the vehicle it didn't look like you had the jack under the oil pan. It looked like it was under the long metal plate with the 18mm bolts you were removing. So I'm a bit confused in this respect. Can you please clarify where the jack goes in this instance. Thank you for your time.
