    Default 84 motor mounts

    Who is using what for performance motor mounts? All the searching I've done indicates the're unique to 84. I bought an Energy kit for a fox mustang from a guy who sold his car before he installed them,and apparently they won't fit according to my research.

    The 83-85 cars should use the Mustang style mount. The 86-88 cars use the goofy puck style mount.

    I love it when someone says "should"....LOL. I feel the same way as the early Fox stuff was interchangeable. Thanks.

    Your 84 should have the Mustang-style mounts.

    When people hear "Thunderbird" or "Cougar" they never think about the earlier ones, only the 87-88.

    I ran the stock Fox Mustang V8 mounts from the parts store (convertible version) in my 83 with the stock K-member and mild 5.0 for years and never had an issue. They are lower than the energy suspension ones so you gain some hood clearance. I think its about a 1/2" and I needed it with the Vic Jr and Holley DP. My air cleaner was the 1" drop which also helped.
