Re: Rear alxe counter weight? and hard shifting

Highly doubtful.Its all metal and there is nothing near it to contact. I have seen similar things on HD pickup trucks.

Re: Rear alxe counter weight? and hard shifting

It's a vibration dampener. My '05 had it. They didn't use them after 05.

Oh, it has nothing to do with hard shifting, but I've read allot of threads about WKs shifting hard.

Re: Rear alxe counter weight? and hard shifting

OK thanks. thats weird that they stopped using them after 05 b/c alot of people complain about vibes in WKs.

the hard shifting part was an add on to the thread, i knew it had nothing to do with that thingy.

My early '05 had all kinds of vibrations and shift issues. I think they thought that thing would help, it didn't help mine. My '06 is so different, so they changed something.

Re: Rear alxe counter weight? and hard shifting

Oh, I just reread your post. I can make mine shift hard if I "lift" at just the right time. Kind of when it's just ready to shift. The more computers they put in these cars the more weird things happen. The old mechanical trannys shifted nice.
