Got my FICM back today

Well I sent the ficm off last week and recieved it today, cant wait to instal it. Ficmrepair.com did the work. Had the atlas 40 put on as well. Now when i took it out all four rubber bushing were gone/missing from the previous owner. I do feel it is important to have them ther to eat some of the vibration. I have all kinds of rubber hose avaliable so i plan on just sizing some to fit just like the factory bushings. That should work just fine right? At least it will be better than nothing.

just so you know what your looking for see page 4

they changed the location of the isolators so you may still have them on your lower bracket VS FICM

You are not going to like this, I had one missing on mine, there is am upper and lower bushing piece. It was crazy expensive from my "local" dealer. I forgot how much, something like 13 bucks for one plus a pack of four ficm bolts. I only needed one bolt but it comes with four. With that said, I think they are absolutely necessary. Tousley ford can hook you up for cheap. I had the part numbers, but can't find them now.

Zmann, good info, but I think that is misleading. My early 04my has rubber bushings on the bracket and ficm. I don't know about the later years. In the picture it shows bushings on the ficm for early years then it shows bushings on the bracket for later years. It's hard to see if there are bushings on the ficm for later years because the arrows are in the way.

Yep ive got the lower ones. I thought ther were installed in the large holes on the ficm. Well i got it installed, and i crank, but no start. The only electrical things i unpluged were the 3 plugs themselves. Yes all 3 clicked. Just one single click each. Tomorrow morning i will reinstal it. Maby i bent a pin.
