Don't overlook the contribution of the compression measurements for each cylinder.

New motor mounts wont knock out the jumbling/shaking of your running engine if there is a reasonable power imbalance between the cylinders. The imbalance can make the motor jerk, rock/shake. My car used to be that way before my rebuild. The rebuild put my compression measurements all exactly the same and now when the car is running you would never know it.
