When good transmissions go bad

Well, i'm starting to get a vibration in all gears and my transmission started leaking oil from somewhere on top. As I slow down to around 5 mph and hold the shift lever in neutral it shakes quite a bit now. The rubber mount is still good. My t-case has poly mounts and it has no vibration through the shifter. Is there something else other than the transmission that could cause this vibration? Is this how they typically go out?

Re: When good transmissions go bad

it sound like you just have some bad u joints more than likly it is on the short shaft to the t case. most of the time when the tranny goes out it starts growling and making nasty noises. pull your top drive shaft out put in a set of u joints and a new seal in the back of the tranny and you will more than likly be fine. later mike

Re: When good transmissions go bad

Thanks for the reply Mike. Does the transmissin need to be removed to change the rear seal? And also, does anyone know where I can buy NON-greasable u joints other than the dealership? Thanks guys
