You just have to jack up the engine under the oil pan. Then simply unbolt the mount bolts. Some guys think it is easier if you do one side at a time by jacking one side up at a time. It does make it a bit easier to locate the bolt holes during install.

You did not specify 4.6,8 cylinder. Anyway all the firing orders are available just by entering '87 T-Bird into the search engine. I also have a 1987 Bird that was originally a V-6 auto and I changed to a 351W stroker that has 398 c.i. and converted the block to a roller cam with GT40 heads roller rockers Ford Racing b-303 cam and a polished aluminum dual plane high-rise intake and 700 cfm Holley. Net is 410 H.P. feeding in to a world class t-5 and 373 gears in a completely rebuilt 8.8 rear end. I swoped the front K member for one out of an '89 Mustang so I could use energy suspension motor mounts instead of those weak oil filled biscuit mounts. I retainined the mechanical fuel pump front cover and eliminated the in tank pump and replaced it with a dip tube. Have lots of 87 bird parts I want to get rid of. Like a turbo coupe hood can't use it because of air cleaner bucket clearance so I got a 3" cowl induction hood from Champion Fiberglass.com. Gosh I do run on but as you can tell I do Love my Bird. I need a V-8 driveshaft. Got any ideas. E-mail at email@example.com
Put the car on ramps. Using a floor or scissor jack and a block of wood, find aa appropiate safe place to jack up the motor to relieve the tension on the motor mount you wish to replace. Remove the old mount and replace with a new one.
yes you can, fairly easy fix usually. requires you to get a new mount, support motor with jack and undo motor mount bolts, raise motor off the mount, replace mount, lower motor back into position, resecure motor mount bolts, and your done. usually just the rubber gets worn out on those things, pretty common.

complete with bracket & mount together! have no clue on tensioner as mine has not went yet!!
