2001 SL2
Default Replacing all four motor mounts over a few months - does it matter what order?

I will be replacing all four motor mounts on my '01 SL2 over the next few months. I plan to do them one at a time as I get free time. Does it matter what order I do them in?

The top mount is shot, and although it's been replaced a few times over the life of the car, I'm pretty sure the others never have been. Now that the old girl is having her 210k makeover it seems like a good idea to replace all the mounts.

Also, do you think it's reasonable to do this with a bottle jack as opposed to a floor jack? I know all the videos use a floor jack, but at this point all I have is a bottle jack and jack stands. I think the upper mount would be pretty straightforward, but I'm not sure if the lower transmission mount is doable without a floor jack. Richpin looks like he's using all his considerable skill to get everything to line up and the bolts started.
