I use an engine support and remove them one at a time usually in rotating order so top mount but leave it loose, then front then trans mount. Then wiggle the engine a bit to settle them in and tighten the lower mounts. Lower the vehicle and tighten the upper mount(s) Never had any real problems unless thy use a mount that is a bridge style where you need to remove multiple parts to get them off. On those I do that mount first. Then the others.
The advantage of the engine support over a cherry picker or hoist is that it holds constant tension and moves with the vehicle while the others can shift around as you work. Not a lot of fun if it shifts while your hand or arm are between the parts.
