I handed my 85 Regal off to a shop to mess with them. They are hard enough with the motor out I can't imagine doing them with the motor in. oh well I didn't have to do them and they got beat by the flat rate.|

|LanceM||If I remember right the JTR swap book suggested using a hole saw and cutting a hole so that the nut can be gotten to on the side of the frame mount. I was able to spin mine off with an impact (got lucky) and instead of replacing that bolt when the new mounts were installed I took the easy way out and welded them in place...|

How do remove motor mounts from frame?
I am doing the 54 chev to s10 frame swap. I am dropping in a 350, I have to replace the motor mounts on the frame to 2.8l mounts. I have tried to remove them but there is a nut on the other end of the bolt and no way to get at it with a wrench.
Do I really have to remove the shock and spring to do this?
