There is a noticeable improvement. There is still some movement/ thump, but it is minor compared to before.
I like to ask how easy, or shall I say how hard, was it to press out/press in the two round mounts (the two round rubbers mounted inside the subframe cradle).

I don't have a hydraulic press but was thinking of using some wood blocks, regular car jack and a round steel object slightly small then the rubber, then press the rubbers out against a truck frame.

It took me about 60 minutes.
Removed Subframe
Cut out old mounts with as jig saw
I used a bench grinder to take a little of the material off the edge (lip) of the mounts so they were more tapered.
Froze the mounts in the freezer overnight.
I used a manual wheel bearing press I have. I bought a thinner/ longer bolt that would fit through the centers of the mounts. I really only used the metal press plates, so could prob fab something.This

I was able to press them in about 75% of the way. I then whacked it with a hammer and it popped right in.

The key is the grinding of material to make tapered edge. Remove as little as possible. Also taper the edge of the opening where the dogbone fits in.
