My 89 is getting an 88 motor in it right now. The old mounts were round and the 88's are square. Can I just bolt up the 88 motor, or do i have to get round mounts.

damn, guess i gotta order some new ones from autozone or something then. Sux because the 88 motor came with the 2 square ones already on it.

When i pulled my motor out both the round ones broke in half and rolled on the floor :eek:

Yup, they do that a lot. Most 89+ I know with the "liquid mounts" have broken the mounts at least once in their lifetime. ~$90 each from the dealer too. Your other option is to transplant the subframe from a 86.5-89.5 and use the square mounts. Or buy aftermarket for about the same price as dealer, but they will last forever. Only prob is all the aftermarket ones I've seen are pretty much solid, there will be a good bit more engine vibration coming into the chassis.
