Default 2000 GT motor mount replace??

i just bought my son a 2000 Eclipse Gt and im trying to figure out which motor mounts are bad....probably all of them. the motor moves back and forth more than it should i think when you go from reverse to drive. Is there a best way to swap them out and a best place to get the parts from. I know that at Autozone, just the one on the passenger side is like 180. Are all of them that expensive? How bad does it hurt to drive the car with it like this? Thank you for any help....i need it

The motor mounts in these cars are fairly soft to begin with. You should be able to see visibly if they are sagging or torn.

you can buy prothane inserts off of ebay or several other websites, they are much harder and ive heard when idling its slightly rougher because they are harder and dont have the give of the stock ones, they do last longer though, much cheaper also

took it to a shop and they said all 3 motor mounts and the trans mount were bad.
Will this set of mounts work?...

it should work, im not really sure if it comes with just the mount or the inserts also, the inserts are probably what is bad on yours eventhough the actual mounts to break occasionally
