The CD players of that ear has no buffering to accommodate bumps. The best thing to do is stiffen the chassis to reduce flex. An easy way to start is a strut tower brace.

Thanks, not sure what a strut tower brace installation requires, but I will check into it. If possible, I would like to find some way to shock mount the CD player.

Strut tower brace takes 5 minutes. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/281294201815? ul_noapp=true&chn=ps&lpid=82 Try it first. No way to easily to make the old cd player shock- resistant. Easier to plug in a casette adapter and use your phone aux plug http://www.walmart.com/ip/44569230? wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227036455803&wl0=&wl1=g& wl2=c&wl3=70630934449&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=158321876209&ve h=sem Next option would be to get aftermarket stereo
