Default Movement under hood during acceleration ?

I feel movement and hear a sound of something possibling rocking back when pressing accelerator (front right). Anyone experience this and had it diagnoised? PT is automatic and had motor mount on right changed couple months ago in addition to control arms. It drove real tight-like new for a few weeks. She is getting up in miles. Still getting 23-27 mpg.

Look at motor mounts again - that would be first guess...
