VR6 Motor mount question.

so my motor mount is out on my VR so i can litterally just push down on the motor with my hands and move it up and down like 4 inches. there is so much play so everytime i give it gas and or shift the block is hitting my axle making a god aweful sound so just wanted to see. I know what mount it is but when i did my swap i dont remember if i need to remove the motor in order to swap the mount. its the one on the left underneath the power steering pump...



^^^ this side.


your help would be greatly appreciated because its getting worse and worse.

Its a 1 hour job maybe to swap it out. Most of the hardwork is removing all the stuff on top of the mount.

how hard was the swap and what all did you nee? did you replace the cluster inside the car? what about the transmission did you swap that as well? and what about axles and brakes and that kind of stuff?
