results of bad diff. bushings?

Which of the following can be caused by worn out/bad IRS diff.bushings?

1) a driveline vibration that's felt in STEERING WHEEL(around 65-70 mph) and gas pedal/seat(most speeds)

2) delay with clunk when accelerating

3) general loss of power/peppyness/fastness.

4) soft/long 3-4 shift with a clunk/thud.(tranny mount??)
is there any way to check a tranny mount?

I'm guessing all, but not sure on some, esp.(4)

any ideas? Thanks in advance.

look at your tranny mount, your u joints, and your irs bushings. As well as have you pinion angle checked.

The tranny mount from the factory is fluid filled, and over time the fluid leaks out and the mount collapses.

You can replace it with a solid rubber unit.

The IRS bushings sit right under the pumpkin and they get worn out, just take a look under there.
