Merchant motor mounts transmit some engine vibration into the cab, but not too bad. You can remove your stock ones, and drill a hole in the middle and bolt it

I'm fine with that and from what I've read it's not bad at all. I had stiff mounts on my Evo as well, so I'm familiar with the increase in drivetrain noise as well as vibration. I'm hoping it will fix the issues I have with my exhaust moving around so damn much and hitting my rear shock since the front pipe seems cocked a few degrees, throwing everything else off...

In cab vibration is barely noticeable on mine, in fact if I would not have seen a forum on here talking about it I'm not sure I would have known the difference...

One thing I've always done to check is pop the hood have someone watch as I have my foot on the brake and slowly engage the clutch. Again mine is stick shift but idk if you could do the same on a automatic with the brake and gas pedal.

^^Yes, you can do the same with an auto, I had a buddy power brake mine in the yard when I had a broken mount and the other one was cracked. It scared the crap out of me, I literally thought my motor was climbing out from underneath the hood. 4-5" of movement is not exaggerating.

Looking for replacement motor mounts now and will mostly like go back with stock.
I plan to replace both.
Pretty sure that this is a busted passenger side:
