Vibration

I have a vibration in my ute that is getting worse, you can see the t-bar, steering wheel and mirrors all shaking as soon as you take off. I can't go over 80kmph without it getting really bad, it seems to be affected by road speed, not engine revs. I just changed the front and rear uni joints today and I've changed the rear gearbox mount, but it made no difference.

transmission 4 sale

I have recently aquired a 202 with a 3 speed transmission that is still in good condition. I have no need for the transmission and would like to get rid of it. If any one wants it, make me a reasonable offer and I'll see what i can organise. Secondly, if anyone has a turbo or supercharger to fit a 202 that they don't need or know where I can get one, let me know.

EH ute - Valuation

Hi all,
I have been looking for an EH ute for a while now and have finally come across a good one. I have not yet seen it, but have chatted to the guy who wants to sell it. It has an original 179 HP engine, original log books showing service history at local Holden dealer, it has done 103,000 miles, original doors (lock only on drivers door), original wood in tray, original tarp, Nasco clear seat covers have been removed and interior is top notch, matching keys. The tail gate skin has been replaced and there are a few knocks in wheel arches. It is green in colour (not sure what its called).

Diff

Hey guys, I need some advice about changing diff centres. I have a 3.55 and want to go up to a 3.08 I understand I only need the centre of the diff for this, but what is actually involved in changing them over? Do i need to remove the rear axles, or can I just take the diff cover off and change it somehow like that? Cheers.

Hi guys. Have a HX GTS Badge. Have acces to a guy who can make who is a pattern maker and can have them cast for me.

Am just looking at how feasable this is. Would people be interested. I know how hard they ar to find. What would be a feasable price that I could expect to sell them for.

Had many calls when advertised badge but only one person was willing to pay the $80 I wanted. Decided at the moment not to sell.

Clunking noise

Hi all.
I have a question and if any one can tell me or have an idea please feel free to respond. I think i know what it is but i'd like other peoples opinions first.
Ok the problem is is that id be driving along 70-80-90km what ever the speed is and as soon as id lift my foot off the eccelerator a clunking noise would happen straight away. Id put my foot down again (not flooring it) and lift it off and it would do it again. I've just had my uni's and yoke replaced so that cancels them out.
