    Awesome! Congrats on finding the solution, and thanks for reporting back!

    For the ultimate assurance it won't happen again, you could put a solid motor mount on the drivers side, but leave the factory mounts on the passenger side and the transmission. It will add a little vibration to the car, but not much. I have been running mine this way for 25+ years. If you don't want to get a solid mount just get a nice one from PST or another aftermarket company.
