**** I just lost an excellent post regarding resonances, wave propagation, and other useful info. Not retyping it, sorry.

Anyway the takeaway was that bull-rushing the rubber washers may not be such a good idea for 2 reasons

1) You may create issues that were not there when you started
2) Even if you are going to do it SOLELY for physical separation of parts, the rubber will still transmit the very low frequencies (and the associated energy they carry) right on through to whatever you're trying to isolate.

I would suggest a replace-as-needed approach

but that's just me
