No, there is a bracket that looks like it is part of either the trans or the motor. I could get to it through the wheel well. It is like a strap holding the 2 together.






Not sure if it is #7 or #8

I’ve never found the mount I posted in that picture, either, I just have the front and rear transmission mounts and the upper engine mount.

I found pix of it but none in situ. The blowups don't show where it goes.

i might start with the top mount then, and work down. is there a "high grade" such as poly etc that anyone knows of, or is the OEM spec good enough

The OEM is probably fine. TTR has a very nice mount also.

So keeping car to small in town driving.. Heres the update.

So now when you turn the steering wheel, now the popping can be heard and felt in the floor board. Still on passenger side.

Heres the fun part.. In he morning, when its still cold here in Ohio, the clunk/poping can be heard outside the car its so loud, not just in the car.. After a few mins of use and warm up, it quiets down to just heard inside the car.

Local Mech thinks I should do a tranny pan drop since it sat for 4+ years, flush it, add new, just to make sure there is no gummed up fluid (ive never heard of this, but yall can give insite on this). also made the statement (visually checked) that the mounts were all good and saw no damage to me...

I replaced the hub, it wasnt that. I can replace mounts and go from there.. Then what cv axles or tranny pan drop?

Try this. Have a helper turn the wheel to make the popping noise. Watch the strut coil spring to see if it jerks as the noise occurs. You can even put your hand on the top strut mount studs to see if you feel it.
If so, you probably have a sticking or frozen strut bearing.
