Should just be able to visually inspect them and determine. For example on mine, My Driver side lower motor mount was Blown out... I got under the car and looked and there was no rubber left inside the motor mount.

Or if they'r like mine the motor will hit the hood on hard shifts :/ New mounts are on their way tho.

But usually you can visually inspect them for cracks or missing rubber. Or if you've rcently develposed some really bad wheel hop. Also a problem of mine now.

There are two ways a motor mount can really go bad,

1. Crack in the rubber
2. Damaged bolts ( *RARE* only happens to race cars, unless your pushing 1200 hp +)

I recently broke a motor mount and I will post pictures up of what you should look for!
