There are four total, one lower engine mount, one lower trans mount, and the two upper dogbones. The two upper dogbones are cake to change, just a couple minutes with a 15mm wrench and socket. The lowers are a serious pain in the ass to change. The engine mount bolts to the engine on the passenger side, two studs come out the bottom and into the subframe. The trans mount is on the driver side, and bolts to a bracket that bolts to the trans, also with two studs going into the subframe. You'll need to take the nuts off the bottom studs, and jack the engine up, use a block of wood on the oil pan. You may also need to lower the subframe a little to get clearance.

The locations you gave me were right on the money. And lowering the subframe saved me a lot of hassle. I was able to get the replacement parts for about 300. From the local Pep Boys , I spent an hour on the trans mount. And about 1 and a half on the engine side , did not rush just kinda had to pry the old ones out. Thanks for the advice. It really helped guide me through this.
