Just replaced that exact part this morning. Yes it will let the motor rock but also check the other mounts. If you get under the car, you can plainly see that lower mount and see if the rubber par it broken.

By the way, the part is $88 at the dealer. I paid $53 because of our MOPAR club discount.

NAPA part will do just fine. Especially at that price. Good deal. Take a look at the rubber part of it first to be sure it's bad.

I paid less than $20 each from here and after a year they are still good.

Just replaced both the upper and lower recently, with the NAPA Balkamp ones.

Filled them with windshield urethane (thanks Uptown Sport):


The proper adjustment (thanks wwpptc):


Here's a few threads that helped me:

I just filled the lower mount with the windscreen urethane. I used to feel the engine vibration when the car was sitting idle. This seems to have cured it. Still got the top one to do. Got the idea from this forum. Cheap fix.

I felt mine putting it in R from D and P and in no particular order. I have a video on my digital camera that shows how jumpy it got.
