2.2 s10 truck - I need to replace the motor mounts. What is the procedure to do this please? I am handy with DYI automotive jobs but I have never attempted to do this procedure before.
FYI; I have replaced half shafts w/CV Joints, removed and reset a head, replaced radiators. I have ramps and the normal set of hand tools.
Some guidance please.

Do you
have the same problem?
