I was wondering why when ever I take off from a spot the car would vibrate? The ball joints are new and the steering gear any other reasons or solutions? Thanks

When we got the car about 2 months ago and the transmission looks to have been rebuilt and sometimes the car wouldn't even vibrate.

Vibrate is hard to determine over internet. Have you had a local mechanic give an opinion?

My guess will be an axle or motor/trans mount problem. Or something that is normally isolated by rubber from the frame or steering of car is being felt because that isolation has failed and it's now in direct contact. Cars have lots of vibrations that are isolated/insulated by rubber so you dont feel/hear them.

When in drive, the axles are under torque and the movement to twist can be converted to lift/fall if the engine and trans are not supported properly, AKA mounts/bushings/etc. If this results in metal to metal contact a vibration may be felt. This could be thg result of improper re installation of trans/other parts. Another question may be are you sure the trans is starting in 1rst gear? If it starts in higher gear this may be a source of extra strain producing a vibration.

I don't know if it is starting in first gear I know after a higher gear it doesn't do that and if I ease up on the pedal then slowly push it again it helps ease the vibration. Thanks
