I have nylon washers in the mounts and it makes the "cracking plastic" sounds, all this time I thought it was the plastic tote I keep in the trunk to partition/isolate stuff.

I might play around with removing the washers and torquing the nut to 13ft lbs with a crowfoot socket at a 90* angle. The latex washers look like a great idea, but I don't know if I could find something like that.
