Source for factory motor mounts, and are they any better? (w126)

I replaced the sagging motor mounts with new cheap ones, and after a few months the ac lines are banging on the frame at idle, and the exhaust hangers keep breaking. I just have to live with the rough idle, but would buying factory motor mounts at least help them last longer?

settle for NOTHING less than lemforder, or O.E. MB Star mounts.
AND replace the shocks at the same time. also, make sure there are no fuel leaks dripping on the rubber, and the metal heat/solvent shields are in place.

Wasn't there a recent thread on how to make your own since the OE were so expensive? Or is my memory failing me?

I've had no engine shocks on mine for years/probably 40k with no issues....Lemfoerdor mounts. But, my engine does run very smoothly...no shaking or anything.

Are the Peachparts mounts factory ones? The only time I ever tried to order from peachparts i called a couple of times with no answer, then googled the part number and found the same part (in the factory packaging) for half the price, so I hadn't bothered trying again. I guess I will wait until I can afford to replace the engine shocks too before getting new mounts again. Most of the time my car doesnt idle extremely rough, but it had at least 375k on it when i bought it a year ago(broken odometer), so its obviously a bit worn out.

It just got better. The thread about the homemade urethane shock mounts does in fact include a post by someone who used urethane to strengthen motor mounts:

Cheap engine shock mounts fix
