Differential failing: replaced with a used 60,000 mile transmission. Both shocks replaced. Years ago, one shock began slightly leaking. Still leaking, so I decided to replace them - good time to do it with the tranny replacement. Both engine mounts replaced. Another shop noticed there is a very loud vibration when driving in reverse so this was the suggestion. But it didn't get rid of the problem... but I think the other shop just slams on the gas, who does that??

The shocks replaced in October both failed inspection this month, so I had them replaced again under warranty (so no cost).
