I am looking to change all of the mounts possible at the same time, I have a 2005 330xi and have vibration at idle and odd rear wheel stumbling when going above 65mph in a turn. I figured the motor mounts (at 99k miles) are due to be changed, and the rear trailing arm bushings should be swapped (that should correct fast turning rear wheel issues). Also to note 2k miles ago, I got new Goodyear tires from sears put on.

When it comes to transmission mounts ... I have the GM Automatic transmission, do I only need to change the Gearbox rubber mount as shown bellow?


If so, how long will it take, and is it hard?
If not, what mounts should I get?_nr_
