a week ago, and I had the exact same noise before and after the axles were replaced.

I thought both of these originally as well.

I have pulled all of the mounts, replaced the dogbone twice with Ford replacements, and the drivers transmission mount twice with Ford replacements, the only one I haven't done is the passenger mount, and when I pulled it to inspect it there isn't a thing wrong with it. I also tried a pry bar on the motor to attempt to move it and it hardly budges. As mentioned above, axles are brand new and the same noise persisted before and afterward.

The only thing that does make it go away for a short amount of time is if I put the front of the car in the air and put it back down, it goes away for about 5-10 minutes of driving then comes right back to how it was all over again.
