Question stiffness of the rear subframe mounts?

hello gang,

Was looking at my rear suspension parts when I had the wheel off for some inspection and noticed that when I put a prybar between the subframe and chassie the rear mounts only flex a few mm but when I do the same on the ones mounted in the front of the subframe they flex a good 10-15 mm without using a lot of force on the prybar.

Aren't they supposed to be equal in elasticity?

I took some mental notes when I was digging around there and I reckon I can replace them by lowering the subframe about 3-4 inches in front and pressing the mounts out. Does that sound reasonable?
