Default 2004 non-turbo engine mounts replaced

I bought my wife an '04 limited a few weeks ago. My knowledge of these cars was limited, but, thanks to this forum, I've become much more educated. To get to the point of my post, I noticed a slight vibration, particularly in reverse gear after about a week of ownership. Long story short, i ended up replacing the lower strut. Within a week of replacing, the vibration slowly came back; I discovered the front mount was shot!! As much as i didn't want to tackle this job, I did, particularly after the $625 quote I recieved from a couple of shops. Basically, i did the headlight, grill and wheel liner removal Thursday evening so i could get right to business the next morning. I began this "ordeal" around 9AM this past Friday and had it back together and on the road by 3PM. Also, I replaced the top strut, as it was showing signs of early failure. If you have the time, patience and a couple of floor jacks, this job isn't too entirely difficult, just a pain in the @ss!! James
