    it might be your transmission mount. i had the same problem with mine, but it went away after i put it up on jack stands when i did my header install.

    Your torque arm could be loose also, I've heard of people having that problem.

    Will your under the car check the transmission mounts. F-bodys have been known to break them from time to time. Also I'd check everything else drive shaft joints, LCA, etc..
