or that's what it sounds and feels like. the only time i feel it bouncing is when i'm cornering to the right. any ideas on what it could be? could it be the main center bearing?

tia,

especially the left mount of the engine. go to the right side and pull hard on the engine to see if it moves.

Actually I should have said go to the left side and pull. I thought since the problem occurs during right turns possible the right mount is busted and the engine is rocking to the left.

Last week I found that the nut had come off of the left mount and it was free to move around. I had some vibration during hard turns and I just thought after your post that it may have been caused by this.

there is a natural amount of M10 movement on the mounts, but sounds like you are experiencing more than that. take another look at the subrame too: was it weld reinforced ? If that has cracked it could be translating weakness to the mass on top and allowing movement. You have had X amount of "good miles" since the transplant, right? So something has loosened, broken, or gone "weak". also: you can apply some chalk to various spots with known gaps and see if it is present on the sides of the car after test drive. will give you more info as to what part is moving and how much it is moving. Just an idea... it should work. Good luck Evan- you will get it fixed!

Thanks Jay. I appreciate all the input. I'm rechecking the

motor mounts tommorrow and will put my car up on jack

stands to check out the guibo. It's weird that it only seems to

bounce when I'm cornering hard right. Anyways, the

encouragement is always nice and I will figure it out. Thanks

again. Cheers - Evan
