    At idle my steering wheel slightly vibrates and when i take off my manual tranny shifter kinda jiggles. Is this my driveline angle?? How would i go about fixing this. Thanks

    Wow, having angels in your driveline is better than the demons that most of us end up with! But really, when you say at idle, do you mean when you are not moving or when you are just starting to move from a light?

    It could be driveline angles, an unbalanced driveshaft or bad motor or tranny mounts

    At an idle your steering wheel shaking is most likley form the vibration of motor
    the shifer giggilin is most likley the torque of the motor
    motor and trany are bolted to the frame via rubber mounts which vibrate, twist, and shake
    whatch your shifter while your driving down the road and you will probably see it moving, espessally when going over bumps
    its all normal stuff


    oh s**t I think I ran over a Honda.

    at idle your driveline is not rotating so i dont think that is the cause of your vibration. could be engine timing

    beligerence doesn't justify intelligence.
