It sure was stiff, you might like it, I just couldn't take it anymore.

Typically the lower mount is called the torque mount because when its replaced with a stiffer mount it will get more torque to the ground more effectively than stock. The other mounts when replaced with a stiffer will have the same result of getting power to the ground just not as effective as the lower mount.

All 3 mounts work together. as for the Vibrating apart thing. If ANY of the mount wear out it will vibrate. When the mounts get old its recommended to replace all 3 because if you just replace the problem mount (the passenger mount typically goes first) the other 2 weaker mounts can prematurely wear out the new mount.
