LS3 - Idleing rough - RPM Needle moving

Anyone else having this issue? You can feel the car rock back and forth ever so slightly while idle. If you look very close at the RPM I can see it hovering over 1000 and below with an occassional jump that will move the car.

Anyone else? Advice?

No need to be an ASS Classic. Thats what the forums are for if you can't find it by searching. Besides, you don't even have one??

Thanks again!

Guys, I agree about cam lope rocking feeling but I think you missed what the OP said about his RPM hovering over 1k. If you are just idling with your foot off the gas, it shouldn't spike to 1k+ rpm. That is not normal. The rpm needle will move just a tad up or down but should not spike over 1k.
