    Spinning Wheels Hit Bump Hard

    Well, i was driving in the rain last night and decided it would be a good idea to spin my wheels a little b4 heading home. I let te clutch out and hit the gas only moderately hard just to have a little fun. Little did i know that i was over a big dip in the road. The car "thumped" pretty hard, and now when i am leting the clutch out into 1st, i can feel and hear a weird clunk. What could this possibly be? I was thinking trans mount, but i could be way off.

    Ouch! How big of a dip? Can you see any damage underneath?

    Not a big dip but it was there, and there does not seem to be any damage underneath the car. I just need to inspect the trans mount i think.

    trans mount seems to b ok, but the torque arm mount definitely is in bad shape. Should this b replaced as soon as possible? My aftermarket y-pipe seems to b in the way a lot, is this job a P I T A?
