Default should I get new motor mounts?

doing a swap... can I reuse the rubber bushings in the mounts or is it preferable to get some urathane bushings. the stock bushings are 4 years old. if I need new ones what brand should I consider?

If your mounts are really bad, then yes you would need to get new mounts. Having bad mounts could cause a slew of problems. You've gotten this far so dont skimp out. Hasport makes really nice mounts if you wanted to go the aftermarket route, they do have a lifetime warranty.
