Newb here.

Did the intro thing.

I just bought a 07 with very very low miles.
Checked the right hand motor mount for cracks..none.

I have read all the posts about cracking on the right hand side but the latest seem to be about 4 years old.

Has everyone here shimmed the right hand side ? was this a common issue or something that was really very rare?

Sure glad that I found this thread, I had no idea the mounts were a problem. My right side had a larger gap than the right. Shimmed both sides accordingly.
Now to search through some older threads to see if anything else is a common occurrence and check for same.

Just shimmed mine. Did not have stainless washers on hand so I used regular ones.
I will eventually replace with stainless.
I did both sides, right hand gap was bigger than left.

the gaps were much bigger than I imagined.
