Cost will determine whether I replace one or both. Logic suggests that ideally both should be replaced. In that event though I will still do the cracked one first and then compare it with the other old one. Due to time constraints this might not happen for a couple of weeks. Despite being cracked, the amount of movement does not seem unreasonable to me and I am not concerned that the mount is about to let go completely. It strikes me that the amount of movement I am seeing (and you are probably also seeing) is quite normal. I expect that these rubber mounts are designed to be resilient to isolate road noise and shock loads from reaching the body.
