With the suspension loaded from either the car sitting on the ground or from the wheel/hub dangling should you jack up the rear, it may be hard to tell visually if there is a problem. Honestly, unless the mounts have recently been replaced, I'd just go ahead an replace them as it's not much more work than trying to inspect them.
