    Hey guys bit of an odd one.

    basically i have this MASSIVE vibration coming from the gearbox kinda area (bit hard to tell). It happens most on decel at about 2500rpm, but also does it on acel at simmilar revs. It has done it for a while now.

    have replaced the following parts;
    new flywheel
    clutch is fine
    new box
    new tailshaft (i thought this would fix it).

    now we are starting to think its the gearbox mount??
    any ideas would be sweet!!

    cheers
    Robo.

    i would check engine and gearbox mounts first and then the exhaust.

    is the exhaust hanging of the gearbox and does it have a flexpipe? toyotas are bad for vibrations like this esp camrys. it almost always comes back to mounts

    even an engine mount can send this sort of vibration thru the drivetrain.
