SOURCE: Clunk noise from rear of truck

How about the U joint? If it's shot, you will hear a clunk when u start up. You probably already know, but jack up the back of the truck (both wheels off the ground) make sure u blocked front wheels front and back so it can't roll, use jack stands so u don't get squished, truck in neutral, e- brake off, climb under, grab driveshaft and twist back and forth to see if there is slop or play in the rear universal joint. Let me know what u find. Good Luck, and don't get squished (or squashed). countrycurt0

SOURCE: The locking rear differential on my 2001 tacoma will not engage.

Form-a-gasket will work, just do not use the crappy blue or the clear, use black, or, if you can find it, the red stuff.

SOURCE: Clunking noise when shifting, but not always. It

May seem to be unrelated but, I had a similar problem with my last truck and it wound up being ball joints. It sounds similar, (especially the rocking forward after stop), might be something to check. If you're talking about a 4WD, it could be your transfer case.

SOURCE: How to remove the rear differential on a 2001 Subaru Forester?

I had a somewhat similar problem: I would hear scratching noise from the rear of the car whenerver I turn. I (reasonably) thought it was the differential and brought the car to the mechanic with this in mind. But it turned out to be a protective cover of one of the rear breaking discs that was bent by an impact. When I was turning the wheel would very slightly bend off the axis and the disc would scratch against the cover. So, it's not always the differential. BTW: I have Forester '03

1994 Land Rover Discovery Manual has a grinding and clunking noise from rear, right side

A grinding noise suggests a bearing at fault or perhaps worn pads on the brake rotor.

However, the clunking noise you mention could also point to a problem with the drive shaft or differential.

The first thing you should do is to get under the vehicle and try twisting the propshaft back and forth. If there's any movement this points towards a worn universal joint on the propshaft. A worn universal joint can cause a clunking noise - particularly when pulling away. The vibration caused by a worn universal joint can also damage bearings in the differential and also to the splined ends of the axle shaft.

You're also going to have to remove the wheel from where the noise comes from and examine the end of the axle shaft/bearing.

The link below is of images of the rear axle:

I have a 2004 nissan titan and only one wheel spins on a 2wd vehicle what is the problem

That is how a differential operates on any rear wheel drive vehicle. If one tire looses traction, all the power goes to that wheel, while the wheel with traction gets no power.

If you find this to be an issue, have some type of limited slip differential installed. Detroit Locker TrueTrac is one that is popular.

Since lift kit install front brakes grabbing 08 titan 2wd

Did your lift kit come with new extended brake lines?
You mentioned the brakes feel like they are "on" and you can't pump up your pedal anymore.That makes me think that like most lift kits,nothing is provided to re-locate the rear rubber brake line that is mounted to the top of the rear differential. It may be stretched so far that it's kinked on both ends allowing fluid to the rear brakes thru hydraulic pressure but not being allowed to release on it's own. Just a thought. Good Luck!

My front differential is shot. How much should it cost to fix, and how difficult is it to replace myself? Is it a recall? because my rear differential already was replaced by the factory and the 4 wheel...

are u sure its the differential that is shot and not the tansfer case, they can have similar symptoms, as far as changing the differential itself, if you simply replace the whole thing its pretty much a matter of like a few bolts.

A clunk noise comes from the rear underside of the differential.

have the drive shaft U-joints checked for excessive wear. if they are ok the differential carrier bearings are worn and allowing to much gear backlash.

Need to get axles off a 2005 Nissan Titan

Two choices. Find an axle assy from a wrecked truck, or if your ring/pinion gears are OK, install Detroit Locker TrueTrac to replace spider gears. Good luck.
