1999 Ford Taurus LX Wagon with 3.0L Vulcan

Just wondering if a person can install both frt. subrame inslulators by just lowering the frt. down enought to squeeze in some new insulators? Just like how you drop down the rear subframe 4" when you install a R&P gear. This way it won't misalign the subrame to the chassis.

Re: 1999 Ford Taurus LX Wagon with 3.0L Vulcan

I get what you're saying, as I did this when I used to lift trucks. I really haven't looked at that, and I've been under my Taurus countless times. Hopefully someone can give you a definite answer soon

Update: Dropped the front of the subframe down about an 1 1/2" which is lots. Just be careful of the frt. whl spd sensors connector/wires that you don't stress them out to much. Then just remove the 4-6mm flanged nuts from the top side of the subframe and they will come right out. Mine actually fell off with the 12mmX112mm subframe bolt when I removed it. The damaged mount had been working away at the bolt as 1/3 of the diameter of the bolt is worn away. My 2 piece mounts are awaiting upon the arrival of the new 1 piece ones!!

normal procedure. Done 100's . 1/2 hour per side. The major rattling and feeling the
vibration of the floor boards under your feet is a pretty good clue as you drive down a
rough road.
