Go to an empty parking lot

turn the wheel all the way to the right and drive in circle slowly

listen for a ticking noise or similar.

repeat in the left direction.

if you hear a ticking or clicking noise you likely have a bad CV joint. not a horridly expensive repair tho a necessary one

one other thing that will cause it is if the rubber boot surrounding the CV
joint is torn.

pleae take a moment to rate this solution.

I have a 2004 silverado 1500 and have clunking in rear end and was told I have excessive back lash in ring and pinion gears how do I fix that and how much would it cost?


suggest that you talk with a diff reconditioning specialist center
if you have excessive pinion to ring gear clearance the diff will be making terrible noises not a clunk
what you have is worn side gear washers in the diff carrier and that is not essential to repair unless you get diff noise on turning corners
All diffs have play in the diffs that most people say is pinion /ring gear problems when it is not
the clunk noise comes from engaging a gear and the diff housing reacts to the load ( radius rod bushes , stabilizer bar bushes etc), the side gears take up the clearance, and the
"U " joints or cv joints take any wear
Best advice is--- if all you have is a clunk ( check everything outside the diff first) and the diff runs quiet under acceleration or deceleration, DON'T fix what ain't broken

Lack of acceleration on ssangyong rexton


If turbo not spinning or you have turbo lag, this problem is normal as the rexy didnt have enuff oxygen. Either your intake manifold is blocked by slimmery carbon after a time or you have some leaking vacuum hose

My 2000 Explorer makes a whirring sound when you accelerate - can this noise be due to a bent tierod? The previous owner had an accident involving the front end and was told that the tierod was haywire?


Typcially tie rods will only make a clunking noise or a squeak. The whirring sound if would suspect to be a wheel bearing. When you drive, slowly turn from left to right, if the pitch changes than its the bearing.
