My back passenger wheel skips and squeal when i turn right

You might want to check your differential fluid. I think those vehicles have limited slip rearends in them. It might need some limited slip additive. I know it is a Chevy but Motorcraft limited slip additive is the best.

How do I change my rear end fluid or check it? And what kind of differential fluid would i use for a limited slip rear end?

To check the fluid there wil be a plug on the side of the Reese diff housing. Use w 3/8" ratchet to remove the plug. The fluid should be level with the button of the hole. To change the fluid first remove the fill/check plug as described above. You always want to make sure that plug comes out first so you know you can fill the diff after your done. Then place a drip pan under the read diff and remove all the bolts that hold the diff cover top the diff housing, roughly 10-12 bolts. Then carefully pry the pan away from the housing. Let the gear lube drain while you cean the gasket meterial from both the cover and the differential housing. You can either get a new gasket or you can use a good RTV type gasket maker. I prefer the higher end GREY products myself. Lay a pencil size bead around the differential. Reinstall the cover tightening the bolts to just barely snug. The RTV should just start to push out from behind the cover. Let it sit for about a half an hour and then do the final tightening. I am almost 100% positive that the rear diff talks regular 80/90 weight gear lube. Your local parts store will be able to conffirm the correct lube and the quantity, approximately 2-4 quarts depending on what size ring gear you have.

Feels like tires rubbing worse around corners when excelerating put on new tires same problem feels like back of truck hard to tell

Hello, If you have rear disc brakes check your Emergency brakes inside the rear Rotor hub. Sometimes the lining of the E brake will rust away from shoe and float inside the drum portion. It is more apparent after stops and after backing up a distance and then going forward.

There can also be clutches in the limited-slip differentials which can act up around corners. Some Models use a friction compound in the rearend to help the clutches work and on 4 wheel drive units the rear differential may use a synthetic gear lube while the front axle uses a normal lube.

Check your E-brakes and if you still have the problem, pop off the differential cover and see what is in the bottom of the housing. This will give you the opportunity to clean inside the axle housing and replace the lube with something you know belongs there.

What type of lubricant is required for the limited slip rearend and does it also require an additive?

A good gear lube, like an 80-90 weight gear oil, and yes, a limited slip also needs a limited slip additive. This comes in a little bottle, add it first, then the other gear oil.

Need new rear end for a 1996 Chevy Camaro (interchange options?)

camaro firebird and transam axles are what i would go for. remember lots of people change out the ratio just look for one with posi it will bolt right up if the ratio is wrong it will only affect speedo and fuel economy a little bit. this can also be changed easily with your ring and pinion out of the old one if need be.

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.

Rear end noise

Classic symptom of dry universal joints. Once they start to pop and squeak you can't just grease them you need to replace them. You'll need to drop the driveshaft to know for sure.
