    me again;

    if i'm cruising along at 40-50mph and i let off the gas, i get a short rumble/vibration.
    if i then step back on the gas (it can be a gentle application) i get the same short rumble/vibration.

    the symptom only lasts a second or so during the torque transfer... but it's annoying.

    Been there, look at the drive shaft to flange bolts, pinion nut, u joints, output bearing on TC, drive shaft. Has somthing to do with the RR drivetrain.

    Mine acted in a similar fashion when the rear driveshaft splines got worn. Like dd says sounds like rear drive prob.
