Re: shifting noise
[ QUOTE ]
Just to make sure...
The noise going into 3rd (up or down shifting) occurs when I let the clutch out...as I let the clutch out I get the "driving over grooved roads" noise/feeling.
The noise downshifting into 1st occurs when the clutch is pushed in and I try to move the shifter into the 1st gear position.

Seems now that you have some clutch chatter, but only in 3rd? And the gears aren't meshing in first. The symptoms no longer make good sense to me. But I'm now thinking about the front bearing being bad (1st gear problem combined with other problems has been the input bearing for me several times)
Wait, unless this is a 3 speed. Then it makes sense that it could be the input bearing...
What tranny are you running?
If the bearing gets worse, it will start to "pop" out of first allll the time and then stop going into other gears as well. (If it's the bearing)
