got a driveline vibration from 30-55kmh, have done the usual tailshaft, rear gearbox mount, checked rims, fully check underneath for worn bushes etc all to no avail. still does it..... sounds like a bit of an oddball one and has just got me stuffed.

make sure it is speed related and not rev related. if it goes away when neutral is selected its not driveline.

really settles down when put in neutral, is still slightly there tho. is an 4sp auto box, would the output shaft bush still be possible cause?

engine mounts are ok, and car is standard hieght, was looking at harmonic balancer yesturday and I reckon that might be whats causing it, has chunk of rubber missing, so am hoping thats it, wil let everyone know when I change it.

Check ur exhaust isnt hitting the tail shaft ,when I fitted new extractors it brought the exhaust closer . When I'm cornering around bumpy corners it's rubs. If the tail shaft is hitting something u wil see marks On it

I shat myself when it first happened then figured out what it was .
