How many engine mounts are there?

I know of the passenger side one and the one under the battery, but what about the third?

Lower rear mount aka dogbone. Get a poly one & be done. cfm & steeda has them. I recommend the poly one.

One on each side & then one at the bottom= 3 the passenger side is called psm & the trans mount is called the dsm (drivers side mount) & then there is on at the bottom to keep the motor from rocking back & forth. The one that goes out most of the time is the psm one. A great upgrade that lot of people do is to replace the rubber lower dogbone one w/ a poly one, which is stiffer & keeps the motor from rocking back & forth. If your replacing the psm= use a ford/motorcraft only. Lots of crappy mounts out there.

Your first link lead to the "dogbone", also known as the RMM (Rear Motor Mount).

Second link just connected to the general site for me.

That's strange they're the same url. It's not working right now for me either.
And now it is working. This is what I'm talking about.

Is this just the dogbone? If so then I can't find the dsm on the site.
