Upgrade option for if you already have a set of my 07-13 poly motor mounts to go from stock height to dropping the engine 1″. You will reuse everything else with your current AFP poly 07-13 mounts except the engine side plate as pictured. It should be installed with the tabs slanting downward to lower the engine. This listing only includes a pair of the engine plates, no hardware or the frame side. If you need the complete mount then youll want to purchase that HERE.
Lowering the engine the engine is generally only for the serious racer that has a good reason to do this. Lowering more than 1″ will require a lot of work. The main clearance items will be the steering line fitting under the oil pan on top of the steering rack, and the crossmember behind the engine at the bottom of the oil pan. A 1″ drop should clear these fine, but modifications may be necessary on your particular truck. The 3 main reasons for wanting to lower the engine will be:
- Additional cowl clearance for large intake or intercooler
- Lower CG and better instant center position for the suspension
- Improves pinion angle with lowered vehicles since it will raise the exit angle of the transmission
Lowered mounts are only sold in pairs.
