You rode in my car with all three bushings, did it feel like a vibrating mess?

I was talking 'bout a 23 w/ a bsd vs a 20 motor.^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I'd think a 20 would be smoother.

I live in Canada. Anyone know any good website I can buy engine mount from? I think my passenger mount needs to be replace because the engine vibrates pretty badly. I'm not sure how many mounts there are in total and if my transmission mount might need to be replaced. If anyone can could break it down for me and link me some good website for aftermarket mounts, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance,

Vlad

Are you looking for stock style or poly ones? You have a passenger side & a trans one along w/ a roll restrictor= aka dogbone.

You have three mounts...passenger side, drivers side, and a "dogbone" mount for your transmission.

Stock replacement mounts can be had on Ebay fairly cheap. If you are a dialy driver and dont intend to mod, thats the route I would go.

I'd at least go w/ a poly dogbone, like VF engineering. Thats a roll restirtor to keep the motor from rolling around. If your replacing your pass/ driver side & want to keep the stock ones get oem ford for the pass for sure or you could go w/ poly ones there too.

^this x2 i replaced my p/s mount with oem then did the vf lower torque mount shortly after. What a difference, and barely any vibration at idle. Thinking about doing the vf trans mount soon too.
