Question Lower motor engine mount[s] question

Hi guys,

Car is 1996 Aero

I have the 'black urethane' bushings for the alternator and torque arm, and a 'yellow with holes' bushing for the transmission mount. I've noticed that since about a thousand miles ago that I installed these poly urethane mounts, i've developed a different looseness/shaking around. I'm pretty sure the leftover 'other' stock mounts are now destroyed.

What other mounts are there? Is there only one other one I haven't replaced? Maybe two lower ones? How many mounts are left? I want to replace those, or apply some sort of 'limiting' mod that I've been trying to search for...

there are 2 other mounts both lower engine mounts.
If you look down from the alternator between the steering rack and engine area you will see it.
the other is below the a/c and water pump close to the oil filter area.
they are originally hydraulic oil filled and you should see them cut and leaking if they are bad. hope this helps

There is also the trans mount, make that one yellow poly Powerflex and it really tightens up everything.

I'm not a Sunday morning only driver, and I completely killed a set of those black poly upper mounts from eeuro in about 400 miles, check if yours are going and consider upgrading to Powerflex, MUCH better product and will last the life of the car or more.
