I got a question that i need a quick answer to because im in the middle of a prothane install. The passenger side mount has two metal bands. There is an inner and outer band. The question is do you need to remove the outer band for the prothane to go in?

It was a pain to get those rings out! I first jigsawed most of the rubber out and then used a hacksaw to cut the band(s). It took about 10 seconds to put the poly mounts in:eek2: compared to the 2+hours of prepping the pass. mount and getting it aligned with the motor

Just a press works pretty quick... pop the old mount by pressing on the outer ring out, press the new one in with the help of some sparay silicone :D

I love going to college for Auto Tech and design, endless access to the shop and its machines :biggthump

Creative use of sockets and a household vise work well, too.

I concur :) Oxyacetylene torches make quick work of the final cleaning steps, too.
