I had to do this when I did the TB/WP on my GS but didn't need to do it when I did the head gaskets on the 91 sedan.

Hope this helps.

You do not need to remove the mounts. All you need to remove is the center support, and it's held in by 4 14mm bolts, and one 14mm from the top. There's 3 14mm bolts at the bottom that will release the rubber mount you're talking about. Once again, you do not need to remove the two side engine mounts, nor do you need to jack up the engine. Just remove the center suppport, then the rubber mount underneath it.
