Toyota knock problem.

It's been a year since i replaced all those rubber mounts except that rear diff
special mount and finally i replaced it last month.

in that year the car stand still for 3 months while i had to use buses
until i found a solution for the transmission that was laying in some garage
waiting for it's redemption.

all that time before and after the overhaul i never had a rest from that
annoying knock.

i went back to the gear specialist and he said that the knock is coming from the back so it's not the transmission faults.
he suspected that the driveshaft is the one to blame for.
so i took it to a driveshaft specialist that dismantled it and didn't found any fault.

so i waited till i replaced the last mount at the rear of the rear diff
just to found out that it became even worse.
i barely now suffer from the reverse knock
but each easing of the acceleration pedal translate into knock

i took it to my mechanic and he tested it on a lift with gear engaging and he showed me that
while the wheels running and the driver lay off from the gas that the
lower transmission mount and the big round rear diff was moving around almost freely.
i purchased Toyota original mounts that looks now like total crap.
and never got rid from the horrible knock.
