    Possible trans mount issues or more?

    Hi, I am 16 and drive a 02 Camaro Z28 with 50k on it. Recently I noticed the big clunk you get from a cracked, or broken trans mount. I decided to change it to a polyurethane one by energy suspension. Put it in no big deal. But still afterwards starting my car while in neutral same cluncking noise was there but not as loud bur more repetitive, also did it while riding clutch and slowly driving along in first. But as I start to move through gears it seems to ease a bit. Just would like to have some help or insight on this if anyone else is knowledgeable in this situation. Not sure if it may he trans mount again, motor mounts or u-joints. If anyone has any idea I'd highly appreciate it if you could help me out, thanks.

    Welcome to the site Conner. I think you may have a bad U-Joint. Put your car in the air and check the joints. Not hearing the noise I can tell you it could be any one of a number of things. Start small and work your way up to the more expensive things.

    U-joint or front torque arm mount. Also possible you have an exhaust clunk if something loosened up in the system.

    How is your vibration level with the poly trans mount? I installed one and pulled it back out after about 2 weeks in favor of the stock mount.

    I'll look into it some more. But vibration wise. It is like the trans mount but doesn't clunk as hard and is more repetitive. I'll start my car while it's in neutral and it does it then when I throw it into first and slowly start driving it does it then usually stops when I'm in higher gears

    Maybe check the Torque Arm mount that connects to the tail cone of the transmission. They do go bad and if not installed correctly even the bolts can back out.
