I cant hear any noise at all when turning right.

Add when i stop the first time after the truck sits i get a real loud sqeel like a school bus beakes..then its the metallic whir whir whir…. I had tried so many things, replacing all bearings in transfer case, gearbox, rear differential, new propeler shaft, new clutch…..but the clunking noise still happened.

Hi everyone, It has begun making an intermittent clunk/chatter noise at all speeds, the steering/speed is not effected but it sort of sounds like the chatter from an ABS system kicking on.

I removed the hand brake shoes and all components as it sounded like the springs twanging, It made no difference, I have just opened up the diff again and removed the half shafts and changed the bearings back to the old ones, there is no unusual wear in the diff all looks fine nothing seems to have moved so I bolted it all back together and it has made no difference at all.

Well when i’m going up a hill my speed starts to drop and it makes a jerk like bog when i try to floor it to go. I wasn’t sure what the problem could be, so thanks for pointing out it’s probably the U-joints! That prevents them from fully retracting with the caliper piston and, especially with floating-type calipers, can keep them in contact with the rotor. When I’m turning the car around (so mid to hard turning), it sounds like a goose squawking underneath the car. Im about to go crazy and running out of money to spend on this thing. Cause: Worn gear set due to lack of lubrication or overloading, Noise: Howling while accelerating over a small speed range (gears previously quiet) After changing the wheel hub, the problem persisted, so the mechanic concluded that the transmission bearing is bad.

Replaced all u-joints on both shafts.

can i retourque pionion gear bearing in 1996 3/4 ton dana 80. I have a 2011 F150 3,7 Ltr 6 cylinder (not ecoboost). One of the bearings was so stuck, they sent it out to a shop with a hydraulic jack to get it loose. It only happens when the truck is moving and at a speed of 40 or more t really hear it. If the wheel wiggles back and forth on the hub containing the bearing, odds are that your vehicle has a bad wheel bearing. It’s not super annoying or anything (actually for a while it sounded cool), but I’m wondering if something is about to go wrong? Sometimes, the noise is not differential-related, but is caused by other driveline or axle components. Sincerely
