Jag rear end into 1942 Chevy sedan question

I am putting a 1970 Jag rearend into my 1942 Chevy sedan and can't get stock rubber mounts to fit. Is there any detriment in mounting it solid to the frame?
Thank you.

Which mount?

Many people mount the Jaguar IRS to a frame. The Jag had a unibody so they isolated the IRS and IFS. When retrofitting a body on frame vehicle isolation is usually not considered.

The rubber mounts eliminate some of the noise and vibration. You can make rubber mounts yourself. They don't have to look like the original mounts. There are different ways of doing it.
