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."

If it's a "whining" , "grinding" or "roaring" noise - stay away from it ! 149,000 is a lot of miles for any vehicle, especially a 4x4 that could've been off-road and abused a lot.

There is a clanging noise when i put it in gear and can hear it while driving is it the rear end or universal joint


Check rear-end fluid level and play in rear pinion gear.
Check universal joints for play. If play is in pinion gear change rear end fluid and add a full bottle of LUCAS oil stabilizer, will quiet rear end noise.

1998 Silverado 1500 Rear End Howl/Leak/Clunk/Vibration Pinion


A pinion seal leaks for one or boyh of these reasons. A worn pinion bearing or a driveshaft vibration, Sounds as though you have both. Do not confuse tire howl with gear howl, be sure.The rear end can run 3 to 500.00 if not more. Ck the gear oil in the rearend for metal content. That will tell you alot. The hard shifting is generally from a sticky spool in the trans valve body. Have the trans serviced w/new oil and filter. The new oil often cleans the moving parts of gum and varnish buildup.in the valve body. One more thing, the rear ends take a special oil and additive if it's a limited slip or posi lock. You will have a popping/binding noise when turning if the wrong lube is install. Have your driveshaft aligned and balanced at at driveshaft shop.or you will end up tearing up the tailshaft on the trans. Good Luck
