I've done some searching and didn't find any similarities to my vibrations.

My vibrations happen at take off only and you could feel it real good like somethings turning. More noticable when passengers are in the car or making a left turn only. It feels like it's coming from the drivers side by either the suspension or transmission.

Has anyone ever encountered this or possibly know what this might be?

TIA, Jose

check the play in your front tires, you may have the same problem i have...ball joints/tie rod ends worn out. when i take a long sweeping right turn at 50+ or so, the front pass. wheel feels like it's dancing. hope this helped and i'm not totally off base.

Vibration issues are most times hard to diagnose.

Just a guess here, but check condition of your Transmission Mount.
If toast, replace with a Polyurethane[Energy Suspension PN 3.1108].

I'll check on both of those sometime this week. Hopefully it's not the suspension/steering componenets since I just got it rebuild 30K ago.
After searching this forum I know that we didn't load the front suspension when torquing everything down.

Thanks, Jose

Well, yesterday night I replaced my endlinks which appeared to be destroyed from being over torqued. I also loosened up the front lca's and uca's and then tightened them up with a loaded suspension. I did this since when I got my front end rebuild 30K ago, I noticed the mechanic torqueing everthing with the car on the jack and no weight on the suspension.

Took the car out for a test drive last night and could immediatly feel a different on how the car felt and responded. I also test drove the new 1.6 rockers and springs that were installed.

I even got to test my car out on a ricer with turbo/supercharger (which ever it was). I could here that thing whistle as he reved on me on the freeway. We both punched it at the same time and I got two cars, then three in front, then he gave up and ran out the freeway.
