a few problems

I don't know what the problems are. I'm getting different noises. The transmissions is having some problems, as well as the rear suspension. The tranny makes a buzzying noise when starting in first, you can actually feel a light vibration through the floor of the car. There is also a clicking noise coming from the transmission in low rpms when shifting gears. And the rear end is making this strange thud noise when i go over speed bumps or just bumpy roads in general typically between 5-30mph.

I've taking my car to a japenese specialist, and they said my car was fine. I'm not on crack, i know there is something wrong with my car. I don't know where too turn anymore. The car has just over 64k mi on it. Its in really good condition, near mint. Any ideas on what i can do to fix these problems. I'm in the san diego area, so if anyone knows of any local shops that would be great.

"Shock nock" is typical for the rear suspension of 5th gens over bumps. Not much you can do other than replace the shocks, any worn out bushings (it may be the upper ball joints on the rear)

Transmission issue sounds weird. It's normal to get a "clunk" sound when starting off in 1st gear but a buzzing sound sounds like something with your clutch.

if i have too replace the shocks i might as well get some coilovers. As for the transmission i think it just might be loose flywheel bolts and bad clutch then. Thanks guys
