    Last time I checked your front motor mount is there for a reason. The engine is probaby shifting weight and pulling the axles out of their correct place. Put a mount in, and get shocks, you can't just throw springs on and expect it to ride perfectly

    I seem to have missed the part in his post where he said he is using solid aftermarket mounts.

    well, its normal for the axles to be a lil angled, cause if the engine didnt come in your car, then things arent going to be perfect, but if its really bad, then thats not good. about the suspension, with aftermarket srings it will never ride as smooth as stock but there are some nice alternatives. ground controls are nice, just get higher sring rates on account of the heavier engine, and some nice struts, dont know exactly, or you could get tein's or something similar, hope this helped

    Those front two mounts are torque mounts<----very important.If you are using a quality aftermarket kit then they don't require them,but cheaper kits don't have the hardness or right design to support the motor under stress.Trade in your,I'm guessing HCP mount,and get some hasports.

    not so easy replacing mounts of different brands, cause each will mount it a different way. i know cause im having problems replacing my mounts and i donts know if its because of the axles or the fact that i had the engine on jacks on the ground, but i couldnt put it into position, see my post about it

    Try taking them all off,instead of one at a time.
