As aluminium has not torque value but will simply twist or rip the splines off the end ,I would be checking for shaft damage first as the problem started after what you did.

I maybe able to help. Did it make any noise when you tried (grinding or groan hum exe..) or just not work. If so the first thing I would do is to change the transfer case oil, check for metal in the oil, if there is that's really not good, take to shop. If no shinny metal replace with good quality oil, if it's red use atf if black or brown use 75W 90 and some. Auto trans fluid is recommended in cold climates or adding torque modifier check with parts store or dealer prefferably for what to use unless comfortable with choice then change front differentail fluid, with recommended fluid and torque modifier for limited slip differentails 2oz or alittle more. both holes fill till you can stick your finger in an just bairly bend it 1/8 or so inches and touch fluid. don't try to fill all the way if it comes out of the whole your filling clean up mess and allow as much to drain out as possible. If that happens you may have it vent through the vent and may see/ smell what every you put in it. If your comfortable with taking the diff cover off and replacing the gasket if needed (usually is) make sure its clean, don't use water or anything water based brake clean is good but check for metal and brownish or simial colored stuff in bottom of housing and of course metal. The teeth on the ring gear and pinion( ring gear is the small one in the back, ring gear is big and will be closest to you. if you have hunks of metal in there its smoked and replacement of ring gear and pinion is required (not cheap) there is alot more to look for but that should start you off in the right direction.

Sounds like it needs a major repair in the rear differential or else the rear U-joint is near failure.

Have you had all the wheels balanced? Have you checked for a bent axle?

2006 duramax tire humming noise from 25mph and up goes away when put in 4hi unless I let off the throttle and ideas?

Perhaps bad tire. Try changing that tire to different location to see if noise moves. Putting in 4WD may change the load on the tire and changing noise. Other possibles = bad wheel bearing or CV shaft joint.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...

does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

Try spinning the rear wheels by hand and see if you can hear the noise, if not it may need to have a load on the wheels indicating a possible bearing, or could be a loose brake pad or backing plate. Also see if anything is touching the drive axels.

I was advice to change the long shaft coupling some time ago. I realised there is some vibration when doing 90km. recently I was advice to change another coupling along the long shaft, which makes it...

Things that go wrong on this propshaft:
Centre bearing. A bearing mounted in a rubber housing in the centre of the vehicle. Inspect the rubber for cracking and tearing. Replace if worn. The bearing itself rarely wears out before the rubber mount.
Universal joints - there are 3, one at the differential in the rear of the car, one at the center bearing and one at the transmission in the front of the car. When worn you will hear a distinct metal "clunk" when taking up drive on pull-away. Check by gripping the shaft either side of the joint and twisting eah side in opposite directions. There should be absolutely no play in the joint. Replace if worn.
Whenever a joint is replaced it is nescesary to have the shaft balanced again.

Left front wheel wobbles when braking

have you checked the wheel bearings? with that wheel raised up off the ground with a jack and on a jack stand, place your hands at the sides of the tire and give it a shake, do the same with your hands at like the 3 o clock and 10 o clock position as to not get your hand hurt if something moves loose, and shake there to, if you feel any play it could be a tie rod, or control arm, spin the tire and listen for any noise, if you hear any you more then likely have a bad bearing....

My 96 taho makes a noise

Change the U-joints on the rear drive shaft. They don't have to move to be bad. The bearing in the joints are rusted. Be sure to mark the yolks on your drive shaft and rear diff pinion. They are ballanced are must go back in the same way you took them apart.

With that being said, did you drop the shaft an dnot put it back in the right way? that will cause a vibration. Also, have you checked to see if there is any play in your pinion shaft?
