I have noticed a clunk type noise/feel in the rear end after taking off from a stop. Tonight a really bad grinding/clunking sound both in drive and reverse, ion gear or neutral. I've been reading...


if the diff is not leaking oil there should be no reason to be low. If you hear a noise in neutral with the truck not moving, its not in the rear end. it may be the trans or transfer case.

Noise coming from rear end, sounds like I'm


sonds like you may be out of lubricant or even worse pinion gear or ring gear or both could be wore out from running without lubricant. Try filling it to proper level with gear oil usually 50 weight oil but i would check specifications in owners manual. then see if noise continues. good luck.

I need to grease or oil my rear axel on my 1983 silverado and don't know where to put the oil or grease... It's a automatic


It depends on which rear end is in your truck. There may be a plug about half way up the back cover on the differential, or it may be on the front passenger side of the rear end. The plug will come out using a 3/8 drive ratchet. Make sure you use a screwdriver or something to clean the hole out before you try to turn it. If you don't get it clean then the ratchet will slip and round the corners of the plug and then it isn't coming out.
Add your oil until it starts to leak out the plug hole. Then it is full and put the plug back in. You need to know if you have a limited slip differential or not. Limited slip takes special oil. Regular rear ends take 80-90 gear oil. Hope this helps.

What kind of rear end oil do i need for a 1999


Hello my name is Ben. For your truck you will use SAE 75W90 synthetic gear oil in the rear.

How many guarts of 75/90 gear oil does a 1999 silverado 4x4 rear end take


this is going to depend on a bunch of variable, engine, ring gear size etc. Try this site, you can pick all your variables.

If you don't know what size ring gear my best recommendation would be buy 4-5 quarts and then return the full one(s) that you have left. I have a 2007 chevy 2500 hd with the duramax and I think mine took just a shade under 3 quarts.

Left rear tire drags in 4wd


Check the fluid in the the axle. Also make sure the brake isn't locking up. You might want to take the axle gear cover off and see if the "C" clip came off or is broken on the gear assembly. Almost sounds like the differentials is locking up.

How much gear lube goes in a 1/2 ton rearend


Three quarts. If it is your first time draining the rear end you should also get a gasket. If you have a limited slip diff then you will need synthetic oil. All in all you should be able to do it for 55- 70 dollars.
