47 Chevy engine mounts to tall!!!

Well I ordered these mounts from Chevs o the 40s. After messing with them all day, I've cone to the conclusion that that are way to tall. The front of the motor could easily come down about 2 1/2 inches and that would level my intake. Bummed to wait till Monday for customer service, but oh well what a beautiful day. http://m534.photobucket.com/albumvie...l?o=0&newest=1

Chevs of the 40s are decent people to deal with, but I'v found some of there parts to be junk..

That pic seems to show them to be about right. They look very similar to most other store bought mounts out there.

Have you set the ride height of your car? Will the frame be level or have a rake/ These are all things to consider before you mount the driveline.

I want the frame level and it is. With these mounts I would
Have to raise the rear if the transmission 3 or 4 inches pushing it into the floorboard. Been doing some searching and chassis engineering make a set with biscuit style mounts instead of the angled ones. Maybe those will lower the front on the motor. I've got about 3 1/2 inches between the bottom of the motor and the crossmember, so I'll figure out something.
