99 V70 2.3turbo vibration/noise at idle in gear

Seems I'm experiencing several issues. O2 sensor replaced, right front engine mount..upper engine mount...lower engine transmission mount all replaced. Now I'm getting a vibration and rumble noise when at a stop, engine running in either drive or reverse. All smooths out when moving or when in neutral or park. The upper and lower mounts are the polyurethane variety and reportedly are stiffer than the OE mounts. It was suggested that I loosen the upper and lower mounts. Start the engine, put in drive, then reverse with the brake on of course. Then retighten the mounts. I haven't done this yet but thought I'd put this post out for comment.

V70 vibration/noise

Regarding vibration/noise in gear while stopped. Seems as if I solved this problem by replacing the lower transmission mount with heavy duty polyurethane grommets with an Original Equipment part with rubber. Vibration/noise is significantly reduced. I ordered the OE part and returned the heavy duty part to the supplier and was refunded the cost difference.
