Ive been trying to find a few pictures so I can have a look at the engine mounting differences of the pre 89 and post 89 front subframe. If anyone has a picture of either that they could post up, that would be great.

Thanks.

That was the exact picture I was looking for. Now, does anyone happen to know if the 98+ mk4 2jz mounts fit in the dowel locations on an 89+ subframe?

It also looks like the angle at which the engine mounts contact the subframe is much steeper on the 89+ subframe versus the pre89? Can anyone confirm this for me first hand? Its hard to tell from just a picture.

89+ point more towards the sky than the pre89. AFAIK the a80 short mounts will fit the dowel locations fine. Its what im using im pretty sure.

Do you happen to have any pictures? This is the brackets and engine mount I am using. With the pre89 subframe, obviously the dowel locations are not correct.



I need to replace the subframe anyways, from damage the previous owner did, so I was hoping to find the correct one that will fit these mounts.

Thanks for the help so far, greatly appreciated.

My recollection is that the 98 mounts must have the dowel cut off to fit the 89+ subframe. Other than that,they fit fine.

Why not just use pre 89 mounts and brackets?

Your pics you posted look like the mounts on the top 89+ subframe. Check out the hole for locating the mount to keep it from spinning when you tighten it. You'll need the round mounts.
