Unless you use real body mounts it'll always be like that, the vibrations are transmitted from the frame, through the bolt and into the subframe. Theres a mechanical connection for the vibrations to be transmitted through the bolt. Body mounts are isolated so theres no mechanical connection between the frame and subframe. You can put 10 inches of padding on the floor and the mirrors will still shake so much you cant see whats behind you. Id find some new body mounts for a small pick up on ebay motors and use those if you want it to feel like a newer ride, otherwise it'll feel like a 100 yr old ride especially if your running solid motor mounts like a lot of guys do. The sub frame needs to be isolated from the frame and a piece of rubber between the two just wont do it. That's exactly why they make body mounts these days.

a quick ebay search found these. They don't seem to come with bolts but the bolts you'll need would most likely be a different length anyways.
