Righto, thanks
Looks like I'll be seeing a transmision joint then.

How urgently would this problem need to be fixed?
Should I stop driving it as often until I get it fixed or would it be OK to drive how it is? I'm usually pretty soft on it, if that makes a difference...

In my experiance, the gearbox will hold together, my auto shifts extremely hard every shift (because of the shift kit) for the last 2 years and is still okay....but your auto may not fit this example, so get it fixed asap.
