you need to have something to hold the engine while u remove the mount and easier do it on a lift and its 30 min to 1h job .
That's the point of the the block of wood and jack. The rest of the engone mounts will also help support the engine. I dunno, could be wrong for you 2nd gen guys...but all motor mounts are pretty much replaced the same way.
That's it - it's in the Anchor catalog as transmission mount.

I have a 2003 Aurora with the 4.0 in it and need to replace the front mount. How do you access the top of the mount? Do I need to drop the subframe as mentioned above? Is there a place to get a manual on this showing how it's attached? Nothing is easy to reach on this?

Yes, you will have to lower the cradle.
The mount bolts to the cradle on the bottom and to a bracket on top. The bracket then bolts to the engine. You unbolt the mount from the cradle and the bracket from the engine, support the engine, lower the cradle, then remove the mount and bracket together.
Here's a pretty good write up from the Caddy Owner's Forum;
