Loosen the bolts that hold the upper crossmember to the shock towers, that will give you a little play.

Yes. O'Reilly has them. No need to customize anything. Just sand down the metal on the bushing with some sand paper and put some lube on it and clamp the SOB in place.

Bought the bushing and part is plastic on outside and seemed to vibrate and transmit noise when accerating. I replace entire bracket part and noise went away. Was thinking something wrong with trans originally. I put simular bushing in that was aluminum on outside on another freestyle and drilled and tapped 2 bolts to secure the bushing.

I just noticed that this bushing is worn out on my 2007 Limited. I know this is an old thread and I haven't read the whole thing, but is there a reason people are using the Volvo bushing instead of the Ford part? Rock Auto sells the bushing for $4.77-$6.10 here: https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/for ... shing,5324

In 2009 a Volvo bushing was cheap compared to Ford dealership est. for replacement of the whole assembly. Now, an easier to use bushing, (with some sanding of the mount hole), is a better option, with better longevity.
