A awhile back I had a local independent shop(MB & Volvo) redo the shift bushings and all 3 motor mounts. I only used this shop because they are conveniently located.
I called another independent that I've used more than once(not so conveniently located) and described everything in detail.
He immediately asked if the motor mounts were recently worked on.
He indicated that he's seen many cases were the passenger side motor mount drops just a hair and then a part of the exhaust rubs against a cross-member. He told me that he merely shims up this mount with a washer and things are back to normal.
I did not mention the shift bushing work but will do so when I drop the car off at his garage Monday.
Thanks for the replies.
