SOUNDS like the turret mounts or suspension mounts,,,,,whichever you wanna call em,,they are at the top of the suspension,,,and they mount onto the body work jack up the car and look at the top of the suspension,,,if no joy pull out the boot lining and inspect them from there if they are damaged you will be able to see the tearing of the rubber..

Uh oh...I hope its not the infamous subframe mount. If it is, your in trouble. I dont want to scare you but it happens in the 99-00 cars commonly. It happened to me. Do a search for rear subframe on here and Im sure youll find some info on it. The bad thing is you cant really see if its happening unless you cut holes in your trunk to see where the welds are.
Check out this website to see what Im talking about.
Im currently helping the guy that bought my last car from to fix this problem. Its not fun, but is repairable. Let us know what you find out.
