Re: rubber frame mount is broken in the frontend what is...
Can you give more details about where this is located? and what it looks like? was it under the car, in the wheel well, in front of the tire, behind the tire, touching the spindle(where the axle meets the wheel)?

check for when the noises occur. check if the noise is when you are going over bumps, rough patches,on acceleration, deceleration, high speed ,slow speed. Check for loose items in the boot /spare wheel well ( jack, spanners etc)
The mechanic should have been specific in showing you the diff problems and I would now ask what diff oil was used in the oil change because if you have limited slip diffs thee is a special oil used.
from your initial description of the noise I am thinking shocky rubbers or suspension rubbers worn or loose.
Does it happen when you drive over bumps? You should bring it by a tire shop, ask them to put it on a lift and check to see if it could be ball joints or wheel barrings. Another possibility would be an axle, if the rubber boot is broken its possible the part may need to be replaced
It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.
look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over. Good luck
