I have narrowed my vibrations down to 2 points 1 is around my steering column somewhere and the other is in my arm rest ...

Nice how to though!
THE NVH can be mostly cancelled out by properly aligning the motor in the engine bay. Ford has left some adjustment in the mounting plates on the PS and DS.

Try that out. That should significantly reduce any feedback you get to through the Steering wheel.

Another way to significantly reduce the NVH if you are very concerned yet NEED the poly mounts and comfort is to fill the front frame rails with 4 or 8lb density foam. I'll post up a link later, but this has been successfully done on a number of other vehicles and you couldn't tell it was using poly or solid motor mounts. (http://www.shopmaninc.com/foam.html)

If you are in need of mounts hit us up @ www.htperformance.net!
