As for the bushing in the pic, I only bought the bushing from Pelican and pressed it in. It worked out OK only because I have a 10 ton, shop grade, hydrolic press at home. Otherwise, it would've been impossible. Without a press, or even with a cheapo version from Harbor Freight, one shouldn't attempt it. It's a pretty hard push.
Yes, the part that actually moves relative to the cushion is the engine mount. The chassis is static relative to the cushion, so that side would see compression. The other side could see some sheer as well, thus the rubber face.
