Dads03SVT ^^^^^ What he said....Massive Purple bushing are the way to go.

I had the other one's fail....well they more or less crumbled.

blackonblacksvt03 yeah just pick up a lower mount or a poly bushing. i myself did the massive press in bushing and it was easy to put in and i saved like 150 as compareed to a full mount

I'd add a vf engineering dogbone. Makes the shifts smoother.

iminhell Wheel hop has very little to do with engine movement. That is a problem of control arm bushing deflection and/or springs/dampeners.

I would say that the $200 could be applied elsewhere for better results.

Is there a problem you're trying to address?

Jaketet I was looking at the VF rear mount too, not all 3 mounts though, it says it may cause unwanted vibrations

02ztsian I had one on my ZTS (Ingalls Stiffy) but I made brackets to fit (not a Focus kit).
I did notice an improvement but it did squeak like crazy.

DEMENTED SVTF Or just get a set of vf mounts

blackonblacksvt03 yeah i have seen a couple picks of guys with them on here but they both had turbos

Jaketet I've looked them up on Summit Racing, the damper itself is from Ingalls Engineering and supposedly it fits the SVT Zetec.
