In my Park Avenue, I feel what feels like drive train movement when I get on the throttle moving forwards. The front transmission mount was replaced when I bought the car (10 years ago), and I suspect it's coming up due for replacement again, especially given the degree of flogging that I regularly administer to it.

I also am long overdue for a rear transmission mount replacement, but didn't really put much priority on it, as I remember it being a rather nasty piece to get at, and it only really affected reverse.

I was contemplating knocking out both mounts at once, but, then again, this video has me concerned:

Is it really that bad? For some reason, I remember mention of possibly dropping the subframe on this move also.

Is there a magic trick perhaps?

I love the way that youtuber talks.
His post says: "I get fusstraightened when things take too long". :lol: :lol:

I think he is not far off. I haven't done that job myself but I think
in previous discussions somewhere, I heard it was a PITA.

For the rear, I think I remember dropping the subframe slightly for more wiggle room. I also remember putting it back in separately. I dropped the mount into the subframe, bolted the trans plate up, guided the mount's stud into the plate then bolted the rest.
