I have been killing myself trying to replace the rear mount is there a secret or trick?
What exactly needs to be removed in order to facilitate the swap? All help is appreciated

Drop the east-west crossmember (control arm bracket to control arm bracket, I think 2 nuts and 2 bolts per side) then undo the 4 bolts for the north-south crossmember to chassis. Remove the two bolts holding the crossmember to the front and rear motor mounts (pop out the long plastic plugs near the ends) and lastly unbolt the motor mount from the motor. Install is the reverse process.

That's the easiest way. I replaced the front & rear motor mounts on a 4th gen without removing the crossmember to do the rear. That was such a pain in the ass. Just make sure the engine is well-supported as it will move a bit as you drop the crossmembers.

BTW, what part of Phoenix are you in?

Here's a video of it being done without removing the EW crossmember.

Don't forget to move the exhaust out of the way.

What do you mean the wrong video? That IS the rear mount on a S series powered 6gc.

That's how I did it in the GTS, and I hated my life. In my RC I just dropped it and it was dead simple.

Dropping the east-west crossmember and using the car's screw jack to take the pressure off of the front and rear mounts (by lifting the engine slightly) made the process pretty easy for me. The screw jack's adjustability also made it much simpler to align the mounts and the engine when reinstalling.
