Re: converted Eb 5 speed now axle tramp!

check ya driveshaft at the rear. i have heard more than a few times that putting a 5 speed in a lowered falcon will cause the driveshaft to rub on he floor around the rear uni's you might be getting this..

other than that i dunno what the problem could be.
