So the craziest thing happened yesterday while I was driving, I down shifted and it felt like the trans moved forward. This thing has been a ball of problems but now that I sorted out the electrical problems I logged 150 miles on it, and the trans makes tons of noise. It grinds from time to time going gear to gear. I got under the car today and noticed these two bolts going through the crossmember that didn't look right and all my u joint bolts were backed almost all the way out. Could the missing nuts be causing all these problems?
