If it shifts slightly, it's not going anywhere. The mount you're replacing doesn't support the weight of the engine, it just controls the fore/aft "roll" of the engine on the upper mounts.

You should be fine like that (that's what I did, anyway).

^Agreed. I did it on my mom's 2003 Focus last month (actually a bolt broke and it was kind of a pain in the butt...) but I don't have much wrenching experience, so I assume you could do it if you're mechanically inclined.

Well DIY is a pretty loose term, considering that can basically mean a 1,000 different things depending on who you ask. However, a RMM should be pretty accomplish-able for most people with a tool kit and a basic understand of mechanics.

Well in that case I retract my request, For now atleast. :)

It just seemed from measuring it would still have some gap but if the tires are on the fenderline and no real gap I will be good with that.

Thanks for the info.

xwhit3devilx Make it less than $100 and count me in. As much as I like the concept, $130 for a little piece of metal and rubber seems crazy. (MS3 Mount). I understand you need to turn a profit, and there are always development cost to consider, but I believe getting it under $100 wouldn't be too hard. It would sell better to boot.
