Lurching

My 2001 manual ford focus is lurching when I change gears. Husband says that this isn’t an emergency but it seems to be getting more apparent. Help!

The first thing to check are engine mounts and transmission mounts which are about the same thing.

You say ‘lurching’ as when you let the clutch out too fast?
