Sounds like your u-joints on your drive shaft .
to test it jack up the rear end off the ground place jack stands on the frame for safety.
in park with car or truck off..
twist the drive shaft by hand and look for play if none than push and pull up and down and look for play.
there should be no play at all even a very little is a bad u joint..,


now if you have a lot of lash when you twist the shaft (over a half a turn ) now you have bigger problems

I have a 1992 Ford F350.Just replaced the rear end. It still makes a clunking noise when I put it in reverse. What could it be


the "backlash" felt by reversing the drive shaft direction is normally the clearance in the spider gears in the diff so to get rid off that ( not necessary unless it is excessive) is to pull the diff center out and fit new thrust washers behind the spider gears
next check the diff mount bushes as the diff reaction will move the bolts in the mounts and make the noise

I have a 1994 k1500 6.5l turbo diesel and every time I put it into 4hi my truck goes about two feet then I hear a loud clunk and the truck feels as though it is going over a speedbump in the front because...


Wow. A snapped side shaft sounds serious. If you lift the front end of the truck, (or the rear end for that matter) the wheels will appear to be counter rotating, it is the way a differential works. If you turn the left wheel forward, the right wheel will turn backwards, and vice versa.
When you change to 4wd the front end does make a rather loud clunking sound as the gears engage. You should therefore change while the truck is stationary, then slowly move forward or back until the 4wd engages, then take off.
If your truck went OK on ice, it should go as well on pavement, just don't try to engage 4x4 while moving.

Clunking and whinning when locked in awd


check the cv joints for wear. check rear drive shaft for worn slip joint splines and "u" joint wear. When you lock in awd there is no centre diff to allow the variations between the wheels and so you are experiencing a torque build up between the front and rear diffs . This put stress on the entire drive chain so any looseness or worn parts will display noises. Remember that the awd lock should be only used on surfaces that allow the tyres to slip and relieve the stress ( dirt road---snow---mud--ice )

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.

When I put my 2005 jeep grand cherokee in reverse and turn at the same time it clunks in the rear end, the service 4 wheel drive light came on and the service electric brake system light came on


I have the same vehicle, with the same issue. I had put the car on a rack and lifted it to pin point the cause of the clunk when shifting from park to reverse or reverse to drive. I found that the front diff mounts were grenaded, meaning they needed to be replace bad. with these mounts being bad it was causing the front diff housing to slam the frame up and down when shifting from park or reverse to drive. this is pretty expensive to fix, your talking $160 in parts and $540 in labor. I also had the service 4WD warning display on my dash cluster, i had the code read. It came up as a bad solenoid in the rear diff. this is about $200 parts and labor to fix. Also, dont know how many miles are on your jeep but if you've ever sub-merged your axles under water or if your over 60,000 miles you need to replace your gear oil in the front diff, rear diff and transfer case. This is a little costly to have a mechanic do as well because you're supposed to use synthetic gear oil. For a shop to do it you're looking at $360.

Rear wheels on 2000 super duty f250 skid in reverse only


I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a severe problem in the rear end. Here are a couple of things i would do. First pull off your tires and wheels. Of course you need to put the truck on jack stands and block the wheels for safety! Disconnect your rear drive line so you know nothing from front diff or trans could be affecting it. Next spin the brake rotors by hand and inspect them for severe damage. Go forwards and backwards. Also listen in your rear end for grinding or clunking noises and also excessive play front foward to reverse. And last drain your oil and put your finger up inside the housing as far as you can and feel for large pieces that should not be there. This should give you a good idea if it is in your braking sytem your rear end or wether you need to start looking at front diff. or the trans. If all is good on rear end do the same thing for front diff and inspect it as well. Make sure you pull front driveline off!
