i don't really know how to describe this but i'll give it a go. i have an XF with 4.1 EFI, an EL XR disc to disc rear axle/diff and a T5. when i'm driving along at say 80km/h in 4th and put my foot down, the shifter appears to "roll" to the drivers side of the car and it seems that the back of the car pulls a little to the left. now i thought this might be a broken mount causing the gearbox movement but i only just put nolathane engine and trans mounts in about 3 weeks ago and have since checked them and they are fine. buggered if i can work it out - does this all make sense?
i rang a diff shop (supatrik engineering, dandenong) and he said it could be because of the diff angle since its from a different model. i have also been told that maybe the rear bush and seal in the gearbox is buggered causing the tailshaft to vibrate and move.
