How to quiet down our AC window unit that seems to make an entire wall resonate?

The unit is loud enough as it is, but when I go into the room next to where the window unit is located, it's even worse because (I presume) of how the wall resonates. We're in an older bungalow-esque sort of apartment in Los Angeles. It's not what I'd call a super sturdy building. Is there some sort of foam or something I can place around the unit to absorb these vibrations? There are gaps of a few inches on each side of the unit (filled in with that accordion plastic stuff) and I can adjust the window height.
