Also, a pic of the 'doughnuts' I made from a heavy rubber foam. These add considerable resistance to the stock rubber mount (also pictured, doughnuts fit inside). Hope to get them in this weekend. Note: These are not solid like the ones from P-51.
I made a pair of donuts out of 1/4" thick latex sheet stock, they remove all free-play but have a little bit of give under stress.

No clunks ever, it's been 15,000 miles since I put them in.
