Driveline moves back and forward when driving
This is starting to bug me, mainly because of what it might mean. It's happened since I've had the car but the XR springs have made it occur at lower speeds.
When I'm driving at any speed, the gear shifter moves back and forward. Starts at about 60 and moves fairly smoothly, maybe a cm in either direction. Above 100 it shakes violently and above 130 or so it's bloody scary, you can feel it through the whole car.
What the hell could be causing this? The engine mounts seem alright, looking at the engine idling it moves from side to side and that's it. Transmission crossmember? A few loose bolts?
