Question about Land Rover Cars & Trucks
Iam getting a thump sound as i change gears and there is a slight delay in power getting to wheels if you turn the drive shaft by hand there is free play.
The differential pin may be worn due to possibly getting stuck and excessive spinning has caused the spider to route out the pin, the excessive play could be caused from the slack between the worn pin and the spider gear. Take the differential cover off and observe this as you play with the slack.

The problem is the rear thermostatic expansion valve (TXV).
It is behind the left rear quarter trim panel.You can pull the panel back to access the valve to make sure that that is the noise.If so you will nedd to have AC system evacuated and replace valve and recharge the system. The part number is YF2Z-19849-AA.

i would suspect bad driveshaft hanger bearing - to confirm, jack up back end of truck and hold up with jack stands. have someone in the truck to accelerate to the speed where you hear the noise, listen for the noise - a stethescope is very useful for this. good luck!

Sounds like the original wear pattern of the ring and pinion was disturbed when the pinion was tightened too much. Once a wear pattern is set in the gears you can't really change it. It might be the ring and pinion wearing that you are hearing and not a bearing at all. It's not the worst thing in the world but will cause the ring and pinion to wear improperly and is annoying. Differential work needs to be done by someone that really knows their stuff to avoid these little problems.
