Does anyone know if the engine mounts for an AT180 (91 Celica ST) are a "common" problem area?

My son has a 91 Celica ST 4A-FE automatic with 262,000 miles on it. Recently, the car shakes noticeably when the engine is cold (and running faster due to it) and is put into reverse. When put into drive, the vibration & noise stops. The issue is far less noticeable when the engine is warmed up. There is some small vibration when in neutral or park.

I check the mounts visually, and they are all intact with some minor rubber cracks, but the pins are not bottoming out. When cold, I can rock the engine a bit with slight noise, but nothing like there is contact with anything.

Any thoughts about what to look for?
