The failure of the RH mount could have contributed to an early failure of either or both of the two other mounts.

Since good mounts should even isolate a bad running engine, I would confidently guess that your vibration is still the engine mounts.

Hey my earlier reply did post! (Sorry for the duplicate)
Thanks for the advice!

I'm going to change the dog-bone and transmission mounts.

Since I purchased a factory RH mount, is it worth it to spend the extra money on factory dog-bone and transmission mounts?

I heard bad things about Anchor mounts sold in chain auto part stores.
