That depends on the noise. It it is a growling noise it very well could be a bearing and could possdibly need to be overhauled. If the noise is more of a chatter it probably needs the fluid changed and a limited slip additive put in. If the diff has not been changed and is still stock it should be what they call a Gov Lock.

I have a 2000 silverado 4.3 that i just put new plugs and wire on


You sure you got the wires on right? I dought a vacume line would make it miss, unless you hear a( large )hissing noise, Look around the plentem and distributor cap and wear you ran the wires, IF your sure its a vacume leak.

ABS brakes grunt, groan noise with brake pedal travel.


Joe it is common for the brakes to moan when they wear down and sometimes they will squeak, try replacing the front pads and lubing the shafts on the calipers install anti squeal on the back of the pads, the ABS device would not cause noise as they are just a ring with a magnet and the reluctor ring spins and the magnet detects the spinning of the reluctor ring, they don't even touch and are stationary in place where they are mounted. There is a possibility that the brake fluid is dirty and could cause the abs motor to groan but you would just have to flush the system, When you don't put your foot in it on the brakes it will make some noise even new, I have a 2008 ford ranger that makes the same noise and the brakes are fine. You will have to adjust your braking habits to stop the noise. You can change the pads and that will help but not for long, be sure when you are operating your brakes press firmly on the pedal until you stop. If the brakes make noise after you let up on the pedal then the caliper parts need to be cleaned and lubed, however it is not a safety issue.

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup


The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.
