Default transmission mount?

i have a 5 speed na 2001 pt. i've filled the passenger side mounts and the car feels much better, however it still has a little bounce/clunk to it. i still want it to be stiffer.

is there anything to be done(or not to be done) to this trans mount?
do they offer a performance replacement or insert?

the car has 240k miles and i drive it pretty hard, so i'm pretty sure it's shot. if not from my driving, teaching my girlfriend to drive stick is definitely providing some extra abuse.

nobody has ever replaced or filled this?

i have a weird clunk and i don't want to mess with trying to remove this if it's not my problem. the top and bottom mount are filled. the A-arms need new bushings, but those make a different kind of sound.

I've never heard of one of our tranny mounts going bad. I know you've probably already done this, but I'd put it up on your lift and check ALL of the many rubber/flexable components in your suspension and steering. There is also always the possability that the real passenger side, middle motor mount bolt has snapped. You can check that while you got it up in the air.
