^^^This is what I am looking for, real world advice. Thank you and I have the OEM passenger mount ordered along with a massive dogbone mount. I have heard tranny mount makes no difference.

And for what it is worth, I have a 2.3, that passenger mount alone is $40-$50 more than any 2.0 passenger mount. Until Friday, cheapest I have been quoted from a dealer is $130, Village Ford hooked me up on one for a hell of a deal!!

Glad Village Ford helped you out, that's what they are here for! Also, the stiffer dog bone mount is a great mod. Really tightens up the shifting feel not having the motor move so much.

Village Ford has beat every single price request I have made, over the other highly touted go to source people here and fj like to use. They are 100% the only place I will buy OEM from here on out.

I have an auto behind my 2.3, will the shifts feel different? It shifts pretty firm at times now (I just had a upgraded re-manufactured transmission installed) by Certified Transmission.

They move those prices around to either high with current most used parts to lower for older ones in less demand. I remember when the earlier zetec ones were that high.

Sorry, Ive never been in a car with an auto and a poly dogbone, so i cant say for sure..I would assume it would though.

lol and then no such luck for a sts then (sorry if you said you had an auto, im used to thinking 2.3=st=manual, always forget the 03-04s came in manual/auto)

I just ordered the OEM mount from Village Ford and a Prothane dog-bone insert set. Even if the poly mount from Prothane makes no difference in feel, it needed replaced at 130K, and is a nice little upgrade over stock.

Thanks to all those with positive comments and suggestions!
