I could tell the mount was bad because of how far the engine rocked, also my exhaust started squeaking when coming to a stop and taking off from the movement. Right now with the car in park, the engine BARELY moves. Just barely enough to notice. Before it would rock back and forth pretty far, more than a couple inches I bet.

I was just thinking under accel its basically motor through bolt into frame with no isolation.

Maybe a few rubber disks in between may make your setup perfect !!!
I did use a piece of rubber on top of mine, and have a piece included with the mounts I'm selling. Only on top though, not the bottom.

totaled is on a distinguished road

I have a 2000 SSEi, when I shift from Prak to Drive or Park to Reverse, there is a lot of movement and a heavy clunk that I cannot seem to pinpoint from listening to it either under the car or in the engine bay, when I shift there does seem to be a large jump from the front motor mount, is there a sure-fire way to tell if it is bad, should I replace it with the stock mount or should I do a solid mount? Any major drawbacks to either of those? Any ideas are very welcome. And throughout the gear range when running the car shifts fine through the gears. Thanks in advance.

If you have clunks and the motor is moving around then you have a bad mount, the most common mount to go bad is the front one. A factory replacement front mount will help keep the motor from moving too much. A solid motor mount will stop most any movement, but will transfer some vibrations to the car.

In the end it all depends on weather you want a stock daily driver, or something a little more. If you just plan on maintaining the car in it stock form, use a stock mount. If you plan on adding a little more power then the solid mount will help keep the motor where it belongs when you really lay into the throttle.
