05 PTC GT Turbo, Automatic. Replaced the top right mount (dog bone) now the car has a pretty bad vibration when idling in gear, worse when the ac is on. Read somewhere the mounts have to be aligned. If so, would someone please post the procedure?

Having an OEM mount may also be important, I have had aftermarket mounts that were slightly physically different than the one that came off the car and had problems.
If you still have the old mount, line them up side-by-side to make sure that the dimensions match. If they do match, then you can usually line up the circular 'witness' marks left behind by the bolt washers on the mount brackets so that it can go back together exactly the same way it came apart.
That should fix the problem if the old and new mounts are physically identical.

I bought it at Napa turned out it was made in china. So much for Napa quality. They look identical sitting side by side. The link Chuzz provided will probably work. Project for tomorrow, too dang hot this afternoon.
