Motor Mounts

I'm thinking about putting new motor mounts on my 200 ci L6 3.3L engine. The reason for this is a bit of vibration from the motor, but more importantly, the only time that it rattles really is when I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left or right. Could this be mounts? I want to correct this problem right away. Thanks guys. (also, anyone know of any good mounts?)

new motor mounts ($20? local store) is worth while because it adds strength and less flex (acts as a crossmember) to the worn and weakened unibody

slim to no chance it will fix the steering

there are to many possible causes to list all (worn ball joints, bad bearings, worn spindles, alignment and strut rod bushings, upper arms bushings for a few) without actually doing an inspection

can be obvious to someone who knows what to look for, ask the guys in the tranny shop where you work and motor shop next door to inspect it for you....otherwise take it to a alignment shop (like you said you were going to)
