I bought a fork mounting bracket and a VW beetle dampner for $100 delivered. (eBay) Bolt to the sidcar. Few minutes and or hours.

I wrote about it here.

Fact is, no one else on this board had the unique bike, sidecar, tire, weight, rider, road combination I had. But My head was shaking violently and that's what dampners are for. It flat works for me.
I got my VW damper from JCWhittney for about 25 bucks!

Me too
It was the machined aluminum fork bracket and shipping that cost the rest of the $100

Not mentioned, or at least I don't recall in this thread, but what about the connections to the bike ?
Positions, triangulation, and number can be factors. Whilst never claiming there's some "perfect" solution, there are factors which can be influential. Bike connection points can be significant and have seen some odd ones over the years.
The configuration of some motorcycle frames doesn't always lend itself to ensuring a reliable fitting, so solutions have to be found.
Not suggesting there is an issue, but maybe some consideration ?
