    For some reason my motor is leaning towards the back corner where the rear motor mount goes and sitting too close to the passenger side frame rails

    I used a chain in the front. Never changed a rear mount. Chain wrapped around the exhaust manifold and then bolted to the subframe straight down. Just a bit of slack.

    I would assume the mounts are collapsed.

    Open the hood and put it in gear. Then brake torque it a couple of times to watch the engine rear back.
