    Default more CX vibrations...

    I have a CX vibration problem ('cor that's a good start).
    Sometimes the car shakes quite a lot under acceleration, the gear-stick is moving all over the place and so on. The engine mounts are all changed not that long ago.
    Sometime it is just fine. Like yesterday, I drove 15km and all was good. then I stopped at the shops and after that it was shaking and vibrating.
    I wonder if this is because of worn driveshafts? Could it be that sometimes they just "sit" better and do not give shakes and vibrations?

    Front ride height .... If the height correctors a a little sludge up, if the front is slightly higher the driveshaft might shudder if worn. Try lifting the car a little and see if you can re-create this

    That's interesting... I will investigate that. Otherwise the old c-matic is better than ever... something is bound to go horribly wrong after I said that
