Motor mount help on I5.

I searched and found only 2 threads that talk about replacing the motor mounts on an I5. Who has done it and how difficult is it? I already have the inner fender wells out and figured now is a good time to access the mounts, they look pretty cracked. Does the engine need to be supported before I start? Are there any other parts that need to be removed to get them out?
Thanks.

I did both in four hours. The driver's side was the tough one. Take off the skids and use a floor jack to lift the engine by the oil pan. Make sure to use a block to distribute the load.

It's just the 4 bolt to the block and 1 to the support?

Looks like I didn't take pictures. Sorry. However, here are some pics to help you visualize where the mounts connect to the block.

I replaced mine a little while ago...and I must say it is a pain in the butt...not impossible but a pain for sure....I'd recommend have some ratchet socket extensions. And like Betts said use some wood chock blocks and a jack to support the engine. The hardest part for me was to get the one bolt that connects the motor mount to the frame, since the rubber part likes to move and so u have to giggle it with a screw driver and try to get it line up everything for the bolt to go thru it all straight and reach the nut and what makes it hard is that there isn't much space to work around
