Rear end noises

Whenever I have to shift from Drive to reverse or the other way, I get a clunking noise i the rear, like the bottom is dropping out. No other issues except the electronic door locks only work when feels like it. Any idea what maybe the issue with rear end?

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.

the gears in your rear end are probably chipped and broke or need shims

I have a clunknoise from my transfer case how do i fix it


most of the time a clunk from under the vehicle when shifting gears (whether going forward or reverse) is a u-joint. check them at both ends of the drive shaft. (possibly 1 in the middle, not familiar with your particular truck)

Clunking noise in rear end when reversing then going forward


The rear suspension has no drive parts as your car is a FWD, front wheel drive. There are parts on the wheel axles which have bearings and also Brakes.
If you have rear disc brakes, the inner part of the rotor has a drum for Emergency brakes and these linings often peel off their brake shoe. The loose lining can get ground up in the turning rotor hub. The Emergency brakes are pinned to the brake backing plate and can clunk when the shoes shift. If you have rear drum brakes the shoes may be out of adjustment or worn out leaving room to rock as vehicle direction changes.
Bearings, excess play can cause noise. Suspension brackets, bushings within the mounts for these components can wear out. When parts are moving in 1 direction a "set" is grooved into the rubber parts. Changing direction of travel will unseat the part and make noise.
Traveling sound. You may be hearing a sound you suspect is in the rear of the car, but is actually a cradle mount around the Firewall. Sound travels through metal.
You need to get the rear wheels off the ground and check for play in all the components. For the cradle mounts, have someone ride the brake pedal and shift the transmission forward and backward to see if noise is generated or excess play is seen.

Rear knocking noise


I had a similar problem with 03 Dakota Quad Cab. I have the towing package withe positrac rear end. The rear end was giving some pretty good clunks especially noticeable in reverse. Had the rear differential oil service done with recommended additives. Noise is gone. A second problem I had was the lower steering shaft assy u joints were worn. Steering "klunked". Changed out the shaft and klunk disappeared. Good Luck!

Transmission clunks when shifting into reverse after initially starting the car.


It has a worn or broken rear engine mount most of the torque is absorbed in the front mounts and hanger mounts except when it is shifted into reverse.

Rear End in a 2000 silverado moning whenever I turn a corner.


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."
