If I hadn't, I'm sure I'd be replacing wheel bearings, or axles, or the rear differential this morning (to no avail!) and never would have noticed a problem that took about 20 minutes to fix and ZERO dollars. Thanks USMB!

"I can also hear the noise faintly with the car stopped, out of gear, with the clutch released. When I put the clutch in, I can hear the sound 'wind down' and stop."

I just jack it up from the body lip right in front of the rear wheels and right behind the front wheels, no bending or tweaking.

EDIT: I now recall that the vibrations started as soon as I picked up my car from AAMCO. Perhaps they f*cked it up when lifting it on the hoist, but I have also found info that says it could be the torque converter which they say they replaced.

Sure, jacking is not a problem, but if your floor jack's on the body lip or jacking point, and you want to place a jack stand, you have to find another spot for it.
true but who's to say you can't put the stand right next to the jack.

Oh, by the way, Finsol, the bases of my 6-ton jackstands are about 8-10" wide on each side, so it's not that easy to just put them next to the jack, which is 6"-8" wide itself. That means the support shoe of my jackstand and the support cup on the jack have to be at least a foot apart. The jacking point on the body lip is only 3-4" long.
