Derek Beland, 1992 Dodge Daytona:
Thanks to Stefan Mullikin and Matt Beazer for taking the time to write instructions for me. The 92 factory service manual also indicates you should take off the body-colored arm on top of the mount, but you don't need to do that either. Here's how I ended up doing it:
Loosen lug nuts on driver's side wheel, jack up and place the car on a jackstand.
Turns out the mount was OK after all, although I have to wonder how much movement it was permitting - the brass diamond was pretty corroded.
Making the best of the situation, I cut a couple of 2" pieces of wood and hammered them into the sides of the tranny mount, firming it up. I really liked the feel this gave on the test drive afterwards. I highly recommend it.
