On3 and engine mounts

Just FYI. I switched over to Energy Suspension engine mounts over the weekend and now the fitment on my On3 stuff is superb. It was pretty good before, but the 3/4" lower mounts really made a difference in fitment. That is all.

the energy mounts where copied from the convertible mounts with sat the engine lower.

and yes the fitment is better with them on all of the kits honestly
stock convertible mounts do the trick too

New stock replacements from where? Ford quit selling the non vert mounts almost two decades ago. Back in the early to mid 90s they switched to only selling "vert" mounts as replacements for all V8 mustangs.

What I actually bought is a brand called anchor industries from summit. Last night I went on the site and didn't see anywhere they have vert vs hardtop. Maybe they are modeled after vert mounts
