Dizle This is the one I got for $57, super fast shipping ordered it on Friday and showed up monday afternoon! Couldn't be happier with the speed of shipping.

Kind of confusing as it doesn't say passenger side, just "standard transmission". I accidentally ordered the one for an auto that did say passenger side oof! Lets hope they return the wrong one I ordered without much hassle

PRSman25 I must have looked at the wrong one.

What was it labeled under?

EDIT:
You have a Duratec

D'oh

Vegoose Just did a quick search - RockAuto is $62 for the passenger mount, non-OEM part. Plus, I absolutely hate their website - prefer autopartswarehouse.com or Amazon.

PRSman25 Why are you guys buying such expensive mounts?
O.o

Rock Auto has these mounts for almost half...

Anyone with vibration issues at idle I would say change the passenger mount, took like 20 mins and fixed all my vibrations issues. After much research on here I went with DEA brand motor mount, didn't want to spend 2x that for a Ford part. Hoping the $60 mount lasts a few years, if not at least I know it'll be worth it to buy a Ford part and it WILL solve my annoying vibration issues if the come back in the future!
I had the exact same experience. I did, however, buy the Ford part just avoid any problems with a non-OEM part. FYI, you can find the Ford part on Ebay for around $85 incl shipping. Good to hear the DEA part worked for you. I think I might replace the drivers side mount soon so maybe I'll order aftermarket.

I can feel a slight vibration in the steering wheel and some in the seat when idling without the A/C running. With the A/C running the engine actually seems to smooth out.>>>> The a/c kicks the motor to a slightly higher rpm.<<<<

I've read on the forums to check for vacuum leaks, possible clean or replace the IAC and/or TPS. Before I do all that, just wondering if I should expect some vibration from the Duratec 2.0?
Yes, its a 4 cyl & thats the way it is. Your going to get vibes thru the S/W. You should see my wheel vibrate w/ bsd & cams at idle. No big deal.

Vegoose Just posted this on another thread too, but changing the passenger side mount is like a magic bullet! Vibration, droning and buzzines are completely eliminated.
