Check the frame mounts too. You will have to loosen the bolts and jack the motor up with a jack and a woodblock.

I would ask you why you want to change the mounts? They usually are not a problem unless the car was in a crash. Can you see that they are broken? If it is just engine shaking due to rough idle then the motor mounts will not solve this. You will need to find out what is causing the misfire to smooth it out.

I've seen people lift the motor slightly and stuff a chunk of a tire in there. Its actually better in some cases than OEM. You wont need to disconnect the motor from the trans. easiest way is to take the hood off and lift the motor just enough to get the old mounts out. There isnt anything real complex about a mount. Like I said... lots of people make their own. Probably more people pay the big bucks to have a pro do it and have genuin OEM part put in, and then pay with their credit card.
