Not the same kind of rattles, in my case anyway.

Hmm, this sucks. I also noticed I had a lot of output shaft play. Oh well, new trans.

Here is what sucks. I had this exact problem before, and I swapped transmissions because of a different issue. Everything was identical, even the excessive loudness in 4th gear. Noise was still there. Upgraded to a Torsen...noise was COMPLETELY gone. Really hope my diff isn't ready to blow already.

Update:

Changed out my trans oil with Amsoil MTG. Gear noise is GREATLY reduced(damn near gone). I guess that **** was just old.
