My 88 TC has a "buzzing" feel in the shifter at certain RPM's, any gear. It's slightly audible too. Should I start hunting for another trans? [Image: frown.gif] Shifts fine otherwise.

could come from any number of different drive line places. I would say check your trans mount and for anything else loose.
Currently birdless, but will get another someday!

What shift knob do you have? When I had the stock one in my '86, it buzzed really loud when passing 4K rpms! Switched it out with a black 8 ball style knob and it's nice and quiet now.

My 87 does that as well. It vibrates bad enough at higher rpms that if I hold on to it, I start to feel sick.

I can also hear a buzzing and it turned out to be the shifter boot. If I press on the bottom drivers side of the boot the buzzing stops.

Check crossmember to frame bushings for wear. If they rot away, and crossmember makes metal to metal contact with the frame rail, it makes one hell of a buzzing noise.
