Should you replace after market motor mounts with OEM motor mounts in 2005 Mustang?

My mechanic told me the other day that he thinks the best way to fix the rough idling and shaking coming from my 2005 Mustang since it doesn't seem to be coming from an engine problem is to to change out the after market motor mounts the previous owner of my car put in and swap them out with OEM motor mounts. He's telling me there are 3 engine mounts,a transmission mount and an engine mount bracket needed and he wants $800 for the parts. Does this sound like the best way to fix a shaking problem and does this sound like a fair price?

$800 for the parts and labor or just the parts? If its just the parts then that is ridiculous.

What kind of motor mounts are in there now?

The mechanic wants $800 for the OEM parts I believe they are Motorcraft then another $200 for labor -he sounded pretty sure since he said he owns a 2002 Mustang that the motor mounts in my car now are cheap after market mounts and that the best way to fix the vibration issue would be to go with the OEM ones instead -not sure if that's really going to help though but it better for $1000

I'm not sure which bracket he is talking about, but the OEM motor and transmission mounts cost upwards of $300. So, unless this is a nearly $500 bracket that needs to be replaced, it seems that your mechanic may be overcharging for the parts. (There are no brackets in the engine mounting assembly which cost anywhere near that much!)
Around $400 would be a fair amount to pay for the parts. (The mechanic has to eat!)
Or you could purchase all of the parts yourself, and see if the mechanic will still install them for the quoted $200 labor fee.

you can purchase good aftermarket mounts / Steeda , Energy suspension for about $250 a set , so his price is waaaaay out of control , IMO
