Shudders when stopped at lights

Maybe we are looking at the wrong end of this problem. How about a bottom pulley that is coming loose, or something else in the accessory drive that isnt quit right.
I guess you could call what mine does at lights "shuddering," though it doesn't feel like anything odd. I always attributed it to a slightly low idle (575-600rpm) and the fact that then engine is loaded a bit with the car in gear as the torque converter turbine is held still while the car is in gear and not moving. Since the engine is running, the converter pump is still spinning fluid around and creating resistance against the turbine, thus loading the engine a bit. I myself have slightly thicker fluid than most as I have a bottle of Lucas Transmission Fix in there, so maybe that's causing extra resistance? It does stop when I throw it in neutral or park, btw. I'll get back to you guys when I switch to synthetic ATF next change interval (a few k).

On my 99 5spd I noticed shudder when letting the clutch out from a stop. Checked the fuel injector connections and found a broken clip on the connector. Used a zip tie to secure and the problem is fixed.
I dont get the connection to the discribed problem and axles??

Just an idea.

About the axles being the cause. If I may try a hypotheses, if an axle is too long would'nt it transfer the engine and trans vibrations to the wheel and through the wheel to the rest of the car. The rubber motor mounts would then be «bypassed» cause the trans would have a direct metal on metal link to the body of the car through the wheel. Such a condition would be very hard on the front diff bearings and also on the front wheel bearings.
Just an idea.
How would the axle get longer?
