hey im not no expert but i think it could be your motor mounts or your transmission mounts it could also be the vaccum line that hooks into the tranny not sure though about that year of camaro, but if there is no hose hangin down that probably aint it .good luck

3rd gens (and 4th) like to break the transmission mount. The stock ones are just weak. I used the urathane ones and it never broke again. The mount will give you the problems you are describing.

Hey I have the same car and had the same problem after installing a B&M shift kit. It was the transmision mount at the tail of the tranny . It didn't look broke until I took it off.
