could be the spring or top mount. ive got shocks and mounts kit but not going to fit them until ive found out whats wrong with the engine was going down a dual carriage way doing about 50 in 3rd and the car felt rough and suddenly blew out a huge cloud of smoke completely covering all 3 lanes and couldnt see any traffic whatsoever behind! the exhaust cleared up after driving for a few minutes. baffles me!lol i have got oil coming from areas around the head so would make me think its the headgasket.
