    I have a 9/73 production date FJ40, I ordered new motor mounts to replace the old round style motor mounts. I'm not sure what the orientation of the newer style mount should be.

    Is the orientation in this picture correct?

    TIA.

    I just replaced my old roundy ones with the square style and that's how I did mine. I don't think it makes a big difference.

    Hey Minnie Pearl, get those stickers off the new springs! ;)
    Looks nice.

    Open rubber side towards the engine...looks like the drivers side gets a 1/4 turn clockwise and passenger gets 1/4 turn counterclockwise, from what I see.
