upper front shock mounts...

Do you guys get these right from Dan? I'd like to replace mine when I get the new stuff ready to be installed. How much did they set you back. I've got 130K on the originals so I think it's time to replace em.

When I lowered mine I put in all new isolaters and the front strut mounts. The isolaters were $11.84 and the front mounts were $38.42. That's each, if you get the isolaters though they come as a set of 2 for each side. I had to dig up my receipt to find the prices for ya'. Hope that helps.

Thanks folks...I'll be looking for the mounts next week. Miller, are the isolators something you replaced on your car?

No isolators, they only had 65k on them and still looked good. I wasn't planning on pulling the fronts apart so I got new mounts, but when the large washer at the top was $30 a side from Ford, I went ahead and used the old ones. My front mounts still looked pretty good too when I looked at them. The way I look at it is that those rear isolators are a lot easier to replace than the front mounts.
