Motorcraft OEM old style dogbone torque mount 2002 ZTS auto zetec

Gang I need some sourcing help. Replaced both front mounts with OEM motorcraft parts but local dealer supplied new design dogbone which requires two new alum. Castings to retrofit. Does anyone have a source for the original design? The PN on the original mount is 98AB-6P082-A. Blue on the casting. Anyone know someone who has NOS stock or is local dealer mis-informed.
I replaced the original dogbone with anchor aftermarket unit but want to replace with Ford unit ASAP,
Thanks for any help with a source

I'd just run the anchor dog bone mount for a while and retrofit it when the time comes... Just my 2cents...

Have you made sure the dealer gave you the correct part? As far as I know the lower dog bone mount as never been redesigned or updated for that model year.

This dealer is not best at locating parts. Just wanted to get a ford OEM while I can. Ford online is not the easiest to navigate. I have not been able to locate OE on line
Thanks for response.

That's what I plan on doing but wanted to buy the OE for backup.

Thanks

Ford did replace the OEM design with the style from later models, and they require you to buy the retrofit kit (which in my opinion is complete and utter BS), not sure what kind of price they are giving others but here in Canada they wanted $150 just for the retrofit kit, and another $100 for the engine mount.

I tried 5 different dealers here and none were able to locate the OEM dogbone, I'm currently using the NAPA version, but in all honesty they just don't last.

Local Ford was able to order after I gave them the PN #is 98AB6P082AH on original. Replacement #on box is YS4Z6068AA Housing. They should be able to order this number and it is the correct part.
Good luck

List is about $50 US (part is made in Poland BTW)
