I can't imagine there are to many companies that actually manufacture mounts for a car that old. Many are probably just relabeled or boxed.

I can't recommend a brand name. Not sure who actually sells. Have you checked rockauto?

A mount is a mount is a mount. Make a decision. They are all the same. Some of those cars came with rubber mounts and some come with hydraulic mounts. Find out what you have replace what you have. rubber mounts can be $60.00 Hydraulic mounts can be over
$100.00 each.

Look at the 8th digit of the Vin #

1 or U is the 3.0L OHV

Y is a 3.0L DOHC

More than likely its a U code 3.0 OHV

I believe there are only 2 engine mounts and a transmission mount. I'll let someone else verify this info.
