93-97 prizm engine mounts front and rearFirst and foremost, break the front wheel lug-nuts free, then get the car up off the ground using a hydraulic jack and 4 jack stands be sure not to place the front jack stands directly under the front suspension as you will be removing that. Remove the front wheels and set them aside.

Next, remove the bolts holding each lower ball-joint (don't worry, you don't have to press them out or in). pull down on the lower control arm just enough so that you can break it free from the ball joint. remove the 3 bolts that hold one of the exhaust hangers right near the catylist. Towards the front of the car there will be 4 bolts, 2 on the body and 2 that bolt into the bottom of the front engine mount, remove those. Next, youll have to remove each of the large bolts holding the lower suspension to the body of the car (carful! this isn't light, its around 65 lbs and can drop fairly fast) You will most likely need a breaker bar for these as they are in there very tight and are huge. Once you get all of that down and out of the way you should be able to see the mounts pretty clearly and they are both held in with a single long bolt that goes through each one. word of caution, these may be frozen stuck and will be difficult to remove but it is possible. once you have those swapped out, just re assemble in reverse order. Dont, i repeat DONT crank down on all the large bolts that hold the lower suspension on until they are all threaded in atleast half way because you need some movement to line up the bolts in their holes or you will cross thread one if you force them in the wrong way. once you have all the bolts back in their proper places, just go back over and re tighen them just to make sure they are good to go. just be very cautious and take your time, i just did this tonight and it took me 4 hours no joke, things can happen that will slow you down. just pay attention to where the bolts go because there are different sizes for almost all of it. i hope this helps anyone who needs to do this job.

Why does Geo prizm vibrate as low RPM?

I am having the same issue with my 97 Geo Prizm. I had my mechanic look at it. He slightly jacked up the motor and said the vibration wnet away and as he suspected it was the worn out motor mounts. It is worse in the winter when it is cold. I am in the process of replacing the motor mounts now, but the cheapest I can find them is almost $300 on the web. Good luck
