Did the rear subframe mounts and the rear diff mount...

...it was all very straight forward.
The subframe mounts weren't that bad but they looked dry and with small cracks.
The diff mount was shot to chit.
I did have a little bit of a hard time getting the driver's side big bolt back in on the subframe mount.
I'll test drive after dinner.

Nice...let us know if it handles better. Did the diff mount change the ride height?

Is it possible that I feel a slight improvement on off-the-line acceleration or am I fantasizing?
And yes, the car did go up on the rear a tad.
