I hear that doing both upper and lower with an auto trans is not advisable due to the increased vibrations, which is only noticeable at idle...
You are referring to the motor mount inserts. There is an insert for the transmission mount as well. There is only one and I believe it goes on the top of the transmission but I have never installed one. I remember looking into getting one for my neon.
