    Question thumping noise.north south crossmember?

    After reading "3sgte_man" (a fellow Aussie)i decided to check out my knocking/vibration at the front of the car.

    question for 3sgte swappers: does your gearbox REST on your north/south crossmember?! mine does! this is the knocking/thumping noise i must hear when i go over bumps and drive down bumpy rd's.when i let off the throttle really quick, it makes a "thump,thump,thump" sound..
    Also my front engine/gearbox mount is new, but it seems to be too soft. when the car is sitting you can see the mount is stretched all the way down because of the extra weight possibly?? this also makes the car's ride very uncomfortable.

    edit: the front g/box engine mount has an adjustment thing on it. i loosened the bolt and lifted the g/box up and retightened it, so it would lift the g/box up abit. it didn't seem to help :?

    my car has a s53 box and its lowered 30mm all round with new shocks/struts.

    what should i do? poly mounts? and does the north/south need to be customised?

    thanks guys
