Anytime.Does it seem possible that the torque converter is locking up causing the vibration?Have 25 years in the field myself so Im glad to help.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

it may be possible im not positive but the vibration is on the opposite side but i know how sound an vibratrion travel iv'e never came across this in a mazda how would i check this iv'e drove it with the snap-on scanner an i have no codes an info is all with in specs

Expert:  Cardoctor74 replied 1 year ago.
Ok I have seen these converters cause this issue if all the mounts are ok and secured as well as the exhaust in no causing this issue you can pinpoint this by power braking it on the lift as you know and prying on the suspension to see if the vibration goes away.Also make sure timing is dead on.I think it has to be transmission related or theres a broken new mount or sub frame issue.These are what you need to check next.Hoped this helped.Please rate excellent service so I can get Credit for my help thanks. Bonuses greatly appreciated.
