    The one big bolt on each side can be removed to raise the engine.

    A single long bolt each side is enough to separate the two halves of the mount and lift the engine out.

    If you're removing the a-arms, wait till they are out before removing the three smaller bolts, as access will be relatively easy when the arms are out of the way. I'm planning to reverse the fittings and weld the bolts into the frame from underneath when I get to that stage.

    Just finished up removing the sandwich mounts in my 1973 Z28. A distributor wrench did the trick for me. I probably have 1 hour into removing all 6 bolts from the crossmember. Hope this helps out. P.S. I used lots of penetrating oil prior to tackling this.

    Don't mean to hijack this thread but i'm replacing my stock motor mounts with new energy suspension mounts,
    Has anybody had issues with them or are they the way to go?
    My motor is a 383 stroker around 425 horse.
    Thanks for the help
