Hello. It does sound like the mounts are bad. You can use aftermarket mounts as long as they are good quality mounts. The dealer ones are the best but there are several aftermarket manufacturers that make good ones. Typically with mounts you get what you pay for, so if they are cheap then the quality is not there. If you want to have these replaced, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to replace your engine mounts.
