Default t5 transmission play/slop while in gear and high rpm shake

ive been tryin to figure out why my shift handle shakes/vibrates really bad ,it only does it while in gear and 4000rpm and up till redline it gets worse,does not do it in neutral.

heres a video of the play/slop im talking about


new transmission mount,motor mounts,new shifter cup handle bushing, with a pro 5.0 shifter,fluid is about a year old,just took out the drive shaft and the u joints look in great condition

why would there be that much slop in only 3rd and 4th gear

20 year old transmission? I think you can adjust the Pro 5.0 as well...bottom line you probably need a rebuild to eliminate the slop

My pro 5-oh doesn't do that. Yours looks like you simply need to adjust the shift lever stops. Mine has the tiniest bit of play in it(137k) but not like yours at all,all shifters and trannys will have a minuscule amount of play for expansion,ease of engagement etc. I would pop your shifter bezel and boot off to have a look see at those stops.

There is also a bushing cup on the shift arm as well as springs that hold the handle steady. But if its mechanical transmission wise, those won't help.
