Default 94 Deville 4.9 motor mounts

About finished with a bunch of work on this 4.9 (pain in the @#$) and have run into one last hickup. I've already replaced timing cover gasket, water pump, oil pan gasket, front motor mount, compressor, condensor, new pulleys, all new o rings, hoses, vacuum lines, tune up stuff. After reinstalling radiator and covers last step is front the dog bone bracket (new dog bone as well). Problem is bracket is about 3/4" short of reaching front support. I've loosened bolts and just can't get it to reach. New dog bone looks same size.

I'm wondering if I installed front lower mount backwards and raised engine some. Anyone know which way the mount should slant? Looks like it's currently slanting down towards rear of car. Or do I just need to drop cradle again to make dog bone reach? Thanks

Maybe my question was too long? I dropped cradle and got dogbone hooked up but it's pulled so tight it's distorted. Still hoping someone can tell me which way front lower motor mount should slant.
