Thats what I did but they are very hard to find, $750 new from ford or $150 from a wrecker if you can find one. As Troyman said , if it does not upset you then leave the bottom two out.


Best I found was $1500 from a wrecker who wouldn't seperate the gearbox.

Ford put six bolts (or however many there are) there for a reason. All but one should be fine in everything but the extreme cases, but thats when you want it to hold up! If youre manouvering into a carpark or something and the gearbox drops out its not such a big issue, but i can think of times i wouldnt like it too happen :D Err on the side of caution
