motor mount question

I was getting some shaking at idle and at various driving speeds, so I got my car checked out (I wanted them to check out other things, too). I was told that the shaking was caused by my motor mounts and tranny mount. My question is... Do they make poly mounts for my motor and tranny? Are they even advised? Should I just replace them with OEM mounts? Looking for advice and suggestions. Thanks in advance.

The tranny mounts looks fairly easy, but the motor mounts look like they could be a pain. I am replacing (almost) all of my suspension within the next month or so. Would it be advisable to replace motor mounts then? Would that make them easier to get to?

Yes they make polyurethane motor mounts. I never looked into the tranny mounts but they probably make them for that too. The poly mounts last longer and they're just as quiet, so I would go with them instead of stock.

i called myself looking before for poly motor mounts but i didnt find any, im sure there are some though
i don't think that when replacing your suspension you would have anymore room than normal unless you are changing k-member too, as everything for suspension is on the outside of k-member

I am replacing the bushings for my a-arms, as well as the springs, shocks, struts, sway bars, and rear control arms. I just thought (hoped) that they might be easier to get to with the front a-arms removed. I tried to search for poly motor and tranny mounts, but was unable to find any. Well, I guess I'll get OEM if I cannot locate any.
