Big smileI HAVE FINALLY COME UP WITH THE PERFECT MOUNT.

Follow this topic and then read my conclusion!

CONCLUSION:
OK, here it is.........................

Buy 10 body mounts for a 2003 - 2009 Ford Crown Victoria with a 2006 part number.
THE PART NO's. ARE (UPPER MOUNT)6W1Z-5400396-A AND (LOWER) 6W1Z-5C155-AA. YOU CAN ORDER THESE PARTS WHOLESALE THRU BOB UTTER FORD OUT OF TEXAS.

Take the center "tube" (shiny one) and cut it down with a tube cutter to 1 1/4". The ugly one is the old one for comparison.


Here is a pic of it cut.



Don't forget to dress on the grinder.

This is why you have to cut the tube...........

The new one on the left is too fat between the body and frame. This will change after you cut the tube.

This is it in the frame and at stock height.

The best part as you can see is I am able to reuse the original bolts. Just clean up and coat with Loctite.

Next..........I will find a solution to the 2 core support mounts.

Stay tuned WinkBig smile
Jim

Genius! I look forward to seeing the rad support mounts.

What is the cost on these, roughly?

$10.68 top (6W1Z-5400396-A) & $9.44 bottom ( 6W1Z-5C155-AA) x 10 mounts = $201.20 Westway Ford Parts Department.


 
I know Bob Utter Ford has them, but they're cheapest at Westway Ford Parts Department Wink

do you need to trim down the rubber part of the mount as well?

Nope. When you tighten it down, it squooshes to a perfect fit.Wink

This is the mount on the frame and it is completely tight as if bolted
to the body. You will notice the big washer that I used under the nut
in place of the body. It is the exact size as original. I guess this is the 
before shot. I can't do the after shot 'til later down the road.Approve

We need rad support bushings, as well.. I spoke with Andy, he said what he used collapsed over the years.

Maybe. Have to wait for the new ones to arrive.  And, bear in mind my old ones were original and I don't recall any of them coming out of the car that seemed to not be deformed all the hell.

Someone started a new thread instead of adding on to the original one.

From what I have seen on THIS thread... seems to be the perfect new body mount option that is readily available.
