At least your case isn't snapping in half If you have the tools, going to a larger bolt could work, just remember you're transferring that stress to your case then.

The front mount has nearly no give though, I really doubt the front mount is the problem. I can't use the U-bolt because it isn't big enough and if I get a bigger one I am fairly confident there will be more play than there is now.
