Yessir, heat shields on both sides. At first I couldn't even see them as they were completely covered in grime. They cleaned up nicely though.

I also found that the years and miles had caused the shield to be pushed down into the collapsed mounts. This effect seems to be part of the reason for having to lift the engine so high, to gain clearance to get the shields out.

I just went out to the car and snapped a shot of the passenger side shield. Couldn't get a shot of the driver's side - no room.

The shield was covered in the same gunk you see of the support arm. Just years and years or road grime.
