Question E36 help!!! drivetrain???

i drive a 1992 325is,(auto) with 150K... a few weeks ago only when racing or hard acceleration there was banging or clunking, coming from under the E-brake area, almost sounded and felt like the back tires hopping up and down as if i where chirping gears in a riced honda. The tranny IS NOT slipping or banging ect. now over time it has progressivly gotten worse, it started doing it when rpms jump, now i cant even accelerate, i have to feather tyhe gas OH SO lightly or else, it clangs and bangs almost sounding like the driveshaft is slapping against the chassis. i have to accelerate extremely slowly, and lightly or else it clanks and bangs, it takes me 5 mins to get to 40mph


can it be the guibo? or mount that keeps the driveshaft in place?

Likely it's a good idea to get the car on a lift and check/repair everything you find. I'd say the car is not drivable before doing that.

It sure sounds like drive shaft unions. It could have been cheap if stopped right away, the more you drive it the worst it will be.

Sounds like the rubber flex disk joint at the end of the transmission. Everyone calls it a guibo.
