I wonder if there's something wrong with the AC compressor. My knowledge is limited on these cars A/C systems though and iirc they are clutchless.

I would start with components that you have modified and the area around those

So the car had been recently towed. I left it in a parking spot up against a building overnight (didnt want to drink and drive) and they hoisted in the rear and drug it out so they can get infront of the car. There are even skid marks to prove it. But as a force of habit I always have the ebrake on. They swear up and down they didnt do damage but could any of this be done by them towing?

What kind of tranny mount are you using? Is it a stock mount or an aftermarket? That would be the 1st place I would look. It is common for aftermarket tranny mounts to vibrate when the AC is on.

Retourqing mount bolts would be a good start.

The mount bolts are TTY and should have been replaced when you installed the mounts last year. If you had not, you should consider buying them before you start the effort to check them.

The bolts were swapped out when the mount were changed.
