Default Motor mounts question

Ok I got a PROTHANE motor mount bushiing inserts for my d-series to put in to hold the engine from moving forward and backwards...... Well i got the trannsmission side in, i also got the rear one mounted, the only one that i wasnt sure about doing yet was the timing belt side engine mount becuase you have to cut it out and the replace ment is the biggest of all the mounts, which the other ones you dont they just slide in makeing it one whole unit. Well i took it for a drive with the two mounts in and when you take off the whole dash shakes really bad and everything vibrates all the way to the back of the car......my question is that when i install the biggest and beefest mount will the car still do this, I mean i know it is still gonna shake some, but it probably will adventualy break my windows out from the vibration if i dont get it in there.....

plz help

cause like in the instructions it says that with the street rubber inserts vibration should be minimal....

I am having a very hard time trying to get this mount to fit right by the way

any ideas

your having a hard time getting the insert in? how ive done it in nthe past is .. lube it really good,(it should have been supplied with silicone lubricant) and then i hold the pieces lined up , put them under my car, and use a floor jack to cram that sucker in.. worked for my trailing arms, and they are even larger.

figured out what the problem was, i just took out the rear mounted bushing and greased up the tranny and engine mounts really well and put it all back together, started it up and idle smooth, does shake, works very well

good you were scaring me, I am installing the same things next weekend to reduce wheel hop! I was hoping it wouldn't shake TOO bad.
