Possible motor mount problem. Set park brake and have a helper hold service brakes then shift to rev. & drive, engine running of course, while you observe engine movement, shouldn't be excessive! While in reverse, hold brakes and add slight throttle may help.

Assuming that it is not a trans. problem!
