Default **Shifter Vibration Problem....PLEASE help**

Ok so I have a problem with my shifter....when its in gear it vibrates REALLY bad...the faster I go the faster it rattles. Anyone know what might cause this?

Thanks

Ryan~

Its pretty common. My '99 does it with both the stock Hurst and the Pro 5.0 I just put in.

does it actually physically vibrate? or do you just hear the rattling resonating throughout the assembly? if it's vibrating, that's bad. it could be a loose transmission mount of possible engine mount. if it's just making a rattling noise, then you're fine. that's natural.

mine did that, it was the two loose bolts that hold the stick to the actual shifter. Tightened up w/ locktite and no problem

Well I got it up on a lift and took a pry bar and it seems I can pick up the tranny about an 1" off the mount....is this normal?

Could a bad clutch make this vibration? The shifter bolts are all tight and all the u-joints look ok. Man I tell ya guys this is VERY VERY annoying.

Also Ive noticed that now when I shift into gears there is a metal noise like the shifter is rubbing on something. I dono.
