I think it needs new motor mounts as well. Its a 12 yr old car so it couldn't hurt to replace them.
Sounds like the gears are grinding a little sometimes when your putting it in 1st gear. I've seen this happen if you try to put it in 1st when the car is moving a little fast for first. If it happens often when your stopped, it could mean your clutch if going bad. From your first post, it sounded like you had an aftermarket clutch, which usually last longer. It could simply a clutch cable adjustment that could help this out. If it seems hard to shift in other gears too, it could be you need to get the fluid changed.
