transmission mount

I have been having an issue with trans mount. Typically the bolts get pulled out of the trans with the most severe being a broken tailshaft. Threaded inserts haven't helpe.

I thought up an idea and was wondering what you all think...see attached pictured.

Basically, wrap a shackle around the tailshaft and mount it to the trans crossmember using springs (maybe valve springs).

Add a rubber cushion betweeen the shackle and trans to prevent chafing, and udjust the preload with the bolt nuts on the bottom.

This is just a quick 5 minute sketch, so no scale has been utilized.

Any thoughts?
