To all the people asking about replacing the 89+ engine mounts (Toyota calls them insulators) here is the economical solution. Many people are already using these 98 TT mounts and enough has been said on the forums about these. However I still see threads all the time about people asking what to do. The mounts are the same height and width, however they have an extra locating pin on the bottom. The 89+ rubber mounts do not have this pin (only one at the top). This pin needs to be ground off in order for the mount to properly seat in the subframe on the car. THe bolt that mounts into the bracket on the engine is slightly smaller but that's not a big deal. Piece of cake !!!

New 98 TT mount (Insulator), you can clearly see the part number, 12360-46111:

Installed !!!

Thanks for the pics! My friend just pulled the motor on his 89 and his new mounts tore. Is there any huge advantage to these?

$55 each from Jay Mark's Toyota and probably around the same from Elmhurst Toyota but don't know that for sure.

Sorry, my search function does not work. Can you mention the advantage of these over just normal mounts?

They're actually cheaper than the 89-92 mounts and they are stronger.

Awesome, thanks for the info. I purchased new mounts when I did my swap but I'd likely install these if I ever had to change them again.

They are a lot stronger than the 89-92 engine mounts. You do pay a price in harshness though..
