sounds like maybe your driveshaft is out of balance. maybe a bad u joint? do you hear any clunks?

you do any hard launches? could of thrown the driveshaft out of phase wich will mess up the balance. other than that, the only other thing i could think of is maybe a bad transmission mount to cause excessive feedback through the shifter.

heres one way to tell if its your driveshaft out of balance. if youve ever felt how your tires feel when they are out of balance, the drive shaft vibration will be a little more rapid as the driveshaft moves at much higher speeds than the tires so if its a real rapid vibration its most likely driveshaft related. my 2 cents.

It could be the engine mounts are worn out causing the rear of the tranny to pitch up a little,causing the pinion angle to change,causing the vibes.??????

Thats entirely possible. Sounds more like a suspension/steering component then anything else. Torn Bushing, ect.
