Is this as easy as it looks?  Jack up the car and just unbolt them one at a time and replace?  No jacking of the actual engine/trans is required or anything?

Just jack up the driver side of the car grab your 15mm wrench and get to going. No need to jack up the trans or anything else other than the car. One is a slight pain due to the downpipes but totally manageable. Second time around took me maybe 5 minutes of actual work with my impact. Zipped 3 of them off and did 1 by hand.
Awesome! Thanks!

Welp!  Got'em on!  Lots more NVH, but these are effectively solid mounts. Haven't had a chance to take a drive yet. I'm looking forward to the feel on the road...

Yeah, it is noticeable. I like it though, I definitely feel more connected to the drivetrain and the car in general.

Coilovers can be used to manage launch issues because of their adjustability.  But there are downsides in terms of cost, labor involved to install, difficulty of installation, AND the inevitable battle between comfort and performance in areas where roads are ROUGH.

Either way you look at it, a vehicle is manufactured with compromises, because it is trying to balance peformance, fuel economy, comfort, and safety.  You can tilt the %ages to your own liking, but there is always something that has to give :D

I will be getting these for my MKS.  I see the knock offs posted on the various Facebook groups already.  They look well below the quality of the original ones.

Okay, after driving it on city streets and the highway, my verdict is in...I LOVE THEM!

However if you're getting them, you should know that they do add NVH.  But if you close your eyes while the engine is running, from the inside of the car it sounds like a mustang with a quiet Magnaflow exhaust, except there's no drone on the highway.  I love it..AND it's actually no louder on the outside of the vehicle.  It has actually given me a heavier foot...

As for the "feel", again, they're fantastic!  I love the connection to the drivetrain.  If your engine has a miss, you'll most likely know it before you get a warning light.

Another thing I've noticed is that the car no longer rolls [what feels like] 2 or 3 inches after you take your foot off the brake in Park.  It's now more like 1 inch.

If you don't want NVH, these may not be for you....but I love mine!  Thanks Anthony!

In case anyone is wondering, the front roll restrictor was eliminated starting sometime in the 2017 MY and the rear was stiffened to compensate.

So if my car is a 2018 it came from the factory with a better mount setup? or just the rear mount compared to a front and rear?

Better rear mount, and front one deleted.

So does that mean that if you were to use these upgraded mounts, you really only need the rear mount?  If the front one isn't actually needed, maybe it's just adding unnecessary NVH?  And running the upgraded rear alone, gets the benefits of the upgrade with a little less NVH.  Just spitballing here, lol

I was wondering something similar however if you just do the newer rear mount and no front I think you will end up with the same situation as the 13-17? I would think you would want to run the new rear and KEEP the front mount in order to stiffen it up more then "stock". Or just go with the new mounts and call it good!
