Noise in reverse


sounds like a brake issue but paul is right it could also be the u-joints I suggest taking a look at the brakes first though also is the noise coming from the rear or front of the vehicle?

Rear End in a 2000 silverado moning whenever I turn a corner.


I would suggest a rear differential service. When the fluid breaks down in the rear it doesn't provide the proper lubrication for the rear and you'll hear the "moan". Don't forget to buy and add the limited slip(posi-trac) additive.

As far as the rear end noise, There was a TSB released on GMC light duty trucks that says "Some owners of light duty trucks equipped with automatic transmissions may comment that the vehicle exhibits a clunk noise when ******* between Park and Drive, Park and Reverse, or Drive and Reverse... Whenever there are two or more gears interactin with one another, there must be a certain amount of clearance between those gears in order for the gears to operate properly. This clearance of freeplay (also known as lash) can translate into a clunk noise whenever the gear is loaded and unloaded quickly, or whenever the direction of rotation is reversed." It goes onto say "...Whilse some owners may find the clunk objectionable, this will not adversely affect durability or performance."
