What if you welded an angle brace to your current mounts that would bolt to the frame and essentially traingulate the current mounts you have already made and take away the up/down twisting that is breaking the bolts? You could also use the same type of rubber spacer for vibration where the brace bolts to the frame if that is a concern. But it would greatly strengthen your current mounts and eliminate the movement that is causing you problem without having to completely redesign anything. Also I highly recommend the bolt through the mounts as otehrs or atleast a chain from the driver side head to the frame to limit torque twist. Just a thought.
