    Tranny shifts hard during WOT

    Question: Not sure if this is super serious or what.
    During WOT the gears change with a metal to metal clung. Feels like the RR tire. I can't tell if it's from the differential or tranny. Is this a common problem. I have 85k on it and don't really know the history.
    Checked all the fluids and they're full. However, the seal where the drive shaft and differential meet is leaking a bit.

    I had to Modify my rubber mount with an Aluminum Plate cover to keep them from breaking on my 1995 Lt1 trans am. I broke 3 transmission mounts b/f I built this. Now I don't have any problems. I have a little Vibration now down low. But better than a Broke tranny slapping around.
    What I started with!
