Firstly you need to know what load/shock is being applied and the duration of the impulse and finally what is your pass/fail criteria.
For example, you may have items on the console that are fine if you have say....10mm of movement, others say 15mm. Thus 10mm displacement becomes your pass/fail. So the stiffness of the mounts is related to this displacement, as a simple spring constant.
