    What type of mounts are you using on motor? Trans? Solid mounts? Need more info on your current setup.

    have heard people have this problem when they run a solid tranny mount, or only a front plate with no mid plate and solid tranny mount, or sometimes no mid plate and lots of hp

    I don't think that's enough. Too much hanging weight between the two mounting spots. You need a midplate, but don't go solid on the trans. Big trouble there! JMO

    Did you do anything to the driveshaft when you swapped rear ends? If not, the driveshaft is too long...
    If you think nobody cares, try missing a payment...
