solid motor mounts

ok so im building a 570hp 383 stroker for a mud truck, im wondering what the pros and cons are for them, i have heard that solid motor mounts will crack your block from frame twist. this motor is goin into a 79 k10 pickup 4x4 with a 3 speed with a granny low. im not sure how much those frames flex so thats why i listed it.

Solid mounts are known to crack bell housings. You can get rubber mounts that have safety's built in that are a better choice

so basically they allow a little bit of movement then lock up like a solid while dapening vibrations? what about the polyurethane motor mounts? what difference do they make? and are they any better?
