All of the mounts were slightly distorted, but the rubber didn't show any
sign of breakdown.  But along with that "slightly distorted," I am curious
if a new mount out of the box is going to be shaped like a cylinder.  IE
sides at 90-degrees from the bottom all the way around...or in other words,
the bolts right on top of each other on both sides.
