To Re-mount or Not to Re-mount?

I know lame title, but I would like opinions about front vs. side engine mounts for a 56 Chevy two door sedan. My car has a mild 350 engine, and I was going to upgrade the rubber front mounts to polyurethane. Is this sufficient or do I need to install side mounts (the block has provisions for both). My seamless frame is in excellent condition (CA car) and I'd rather not modify the frame unless I am convinced that the conversion to side mounts is a must.

side or front mounts

I can only said that I've need broke a front mount in the 55, 56,or 57 chevy.
but there is more motor vibration with them. If I wasn't going to jerk it around and wanted smooth ride, I'd go with the side mounts. You can make a nice job of the welding on the frame nice and neat. Flip a coin?
