prop shaft question?????

hello everyone,
i have a 2005 sti with 16,000 miles on the clock. have noticed a very small knock noise from the prop shaft when i change gears slowly it really is very small but still bugging me. i have been under the car and traced the knock all the way in to the transmission. i have had a few people tell me this is normal just wanted to see what you guys think.

Re: prop shaft question?????

Its the nylon bush it(the prop) rubs/hits against, get it well greased up and it does help,
it is common.
