Motor mounts

Has anyone with a 2011-2014 Mustang GT had to replace the motor mounts? If so what did you replace them with and how tough a job is it?

I've seen them removed and replaced in long tube header install videos and it doesn't look hard at all. One at a time support the motor on the corners of the oil pan with a floor jack and a piece of wood.

As far as what to replace it with. I'd look at Steeda motor mounts.

haven't installed aftermarket motor mounts, but I have installed long tubes, and it involves removing and reinstalling them, not too hard a job, but w/e you do, DO NOT jack/support the motor by the oil pan! use a block of wood on the transmission bell housing just behind the oil pan

I've seen a few videos and they jack it just slightly on a corner of the oil pan with a block of wood obviously.

Of course you want to avoid bending or breaking anything. I wouldn't have mentioned it unless I had seen it done that way. I thought it was a bit of a risky maneuver myself but once you see them do it it seem safe.

Watch some YouTube videos OP

It looks pretty straightforward, I should be able to do it in my garage.
After all, I've done all the other mods on my car without any major mishaps

Agreed. The oil pan seems like a bad place to lift from

Also UPR adjustable motor mounts are good ones

Thanks for all the input.
I'll do my research and make a decision.
