There are 2 'steel' arms on the from the engine connecting to the frame or radiator area. They seam to have rubber gaskets or bushing that are falling apart. When I search motor mounts it doesn't look like it and I am just not sure what parts they are to be able to see if I can get this fixed.

Thank you,

Hi kld1111. Welcome to the forum. Those arms prevent the engine from rocking excessively when you accelerate. Replacements may not look the same. The dimensions are what is important. Many aftermarket suppliers make replacement parts that are vastly improved over the originals. Some even look like small shock absorbers. They work very well even though they don't look the same. You may find them listed as an engine mount or as an engine strut.
