I've been going over everything that could possibly be causing my car to vibrate and have the RPMs bounce during the vibrations. Assuming the rebuilt transmission is not the source of my problem (which my shop is adamant about), it is possible that the vibrations I get under a slight load be from bad C/V geometry due to lowering?

You can use the Pontiac Montana dogbones if you go that route.

If you want to go that route I have half a set of Vinnies spacers for sale. Wink

Since it appears that my issue is related to the transmission, I'm still not planning on using them, but I might give shorter dog bones a whirl and see what happens.
