I hear you! I took out 1/4 coil in the rear to level my Focus and looking at it from the side now, there is maybe just a little over 1" of gap all around.

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.

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.

Is replacing the rear engine mount a DIY project?

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.

^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 I do my own oil changes, brake jobs and spark plugs, so I think I can handle it. Is there any danger with the motor shifting while this is being replaced, liks is it ok to do on jack stands with me under it?

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