Re: Ford5.0 jeepers, are u using the STOCK brackets?
I would strongly advise that you beef up the MORE mounts at the L metal between the engine mount bolts. If used hard the brackets will bend (the section between the engine mounting bolts will bend upward at the bushing mount).
Also the MORE design forces a lot of outward pressure at the frame rails, due to the ability to rotate outward at the bushings when extra force from bouncing forces the engine downward. I would suggest a cross member from frame rail to frame rail at the location of the mounts, to lock everything into place and prevent fatiguing at the frame rails.
I like the MORE style of mounts, but they do have inheirant design problems that need to be addressed.
I speak from experience.
