My mistake...

on my first and only reading of your post, I thought you lamented the lack of "feet" and so are using your own solution to that problem.

The best, really only, way I have ever read about (but never used) to cure the "problem" (if it is a problem) of vibrating capacitors and resistors is that spray-on or paint-on compound, can't recall the name of it, that really does dampen vibrations. However, it must be a nightmare if you later want to change out parts or service the circuit. Other than that, one could use double-sided tape and other forms of goop. So what do you do?

One guru on TubeDIY actually recommended keeping capacitor and resistor leads as long as possible and coiling them up so as to allow the leads to act like a spring, in an attempt to decouple the part from the vibration of the chassis. But that leaves the part free in space to vibrate secondary to signal transfer.
