I recently rolled my 04 edge it has the 3.0 and 5 speed, I bought an 08 I refreshed the engine the whole 9 yards but as I went to drop it in, the mounts wouldn't line up, everything else between the engines are the same I've found other than the mounts, is there a simple fix to this? I've tried both sets of mounts

Weird. The mounts should be the same at the motor. I am going to check RockAuto to see if the part numbers are different

Part numbers are the same for motor mounts. Has to be something just aligned wrong or in the wrong holes?
