Well its not normal i can say that for sure, could really only say for sure what it is if the jerking is coming from the tranny or engine, my guess is timing. does it idle?

It runs great, idles perfect.. IT only does it if i hit the gas hard and let off real quick..on my old gt i had an aftermarket exhaust and that used to bang the bottom of the body when i did that but my new gt is stock and does it..Could it be a engine or tranny mount cause them to bang the frame?

Driving only .. If you are even cruising sometime and let off the gas it will bang.. i looked at the mount thats on the firewall attached to the trans. and there is no rubber what so ever in the mount..

Probably the lower tranny mount. I'd replace both tranny mounts while you're in there. They're cheap.
