Dog bone mount.

I have 2010 focus that's got a 2 month old dog bone mount on it but lately iv noticed a engine kick back as its warning up in park. I can literally feel the engine rock back and ford even so often. Is this normal and if so how can I prevent it from doing so. Also are these the inserts incan be to help make a better connection so there isnt a kick back from the engine. What I imagined happening is the rubber mount in the housing is moving back and forth with the weight if the engine kicking around until its warm and figured out what it wants to do

If you are bothered by vibration you will not like those.
Yes some movement is normal that is the compromise with a rubber mount less vibration more movement.
Performance motor mounts more vibration less movement.

It will hurt absolutely nothing, but if you are bothered by vibrations you will not like it.

Your engine shouldn't be moving while it's in park.The purpose of the dog bone mount is to help control movement when power is applied.

You have complained about vibration quite a bit I promise you you will not like it.

You are over analyzing your engine movement I have driven these cars with complete broken engine mounts before.

It's a cheap economy car just take care of it and drive it.

When it drops under 1000 rpms I can feel the engine like rock a big and I can feel it in the seat so at this point should I warranty out this mount. It feels like a normal engine idle but sometimes I can feel my seat rock when the idle jumps up

The kickback you are describing should only exist during shifting, and when heavy power is applied.

The only thing a upgraded mount will do for you at idle is increase your vibration at idle that's when they vibrate.

A OEM rubber rear motor mount is easy to inspect if the rubber is intact and it's not torn it's fine.
