I did this last winter, both front engine mounts broke, just wondering if anyone else has done anything like this.

it was lined up pretty decent, not 100%, but as good as you can get a zf drive that's between the engine beds, and wedged up against the fuel tank. here is a pic of the replacement mounts we got, they were exactly like the original ones, btw, they snapped right where you see that line where they faced off the mount.
