Care to share any details of your experience?

Quick update: CFM shipped me a new bushing immediately after calling them. They rock.

I see that you have an SVT and I had the same problem with my VF mount. When I went over a large expansion joint it popped out half the bushing on the tranny side of the mount. On one side there's a steel plate that covers and supports the whole bushing and on the other side half the bushing is exposed and unsupported so it can pop out, which has happened to me twice. The easy fix is to loosen the bolts holding on the steel plate and take out the bushing bolt far enough so you can slid a large washer between the tranny and bushing so it can't pop out again and then just tighten all the bolts. Problem solved. The manufacturers should make the mount with a narrower bushing on the tranny side with a washer pressed on the metal bushing in the middle of the mount.

Yes it did. I have the VF version so I have to buy new bushings from Focus Sport.
