98 motor/trans mount

Is it easy to replace yourself or no? Which brand should I go with?

They're pretty easy. For the motor you remove the big nuts (lol) holding the mounts to the k member and then jack the engine up a little with a block of wood on the oil pan. Then you just unbolt the old motor mounts, install new ones, drop it back down and torque the nuts.

For the trans mount you just unbolt it from the crossmember, jack the trans up enough to get it out and swap it with the new one.

Energy suspension is a good one.

I like the poly ones myself or even solid metal ones but if you do go with rubber ones then ONLY go with OEM Ford as Slow4V suggested. Just FYI the Prothane ones raise your motor up more than stock which can throw off your ds alignment which=stay away.
