They call them half shafts
purchase a rebuilt unit for each side
they simply snap in and snap out of the trans after the hub assembly is removed

Why does the rear differential thumps from starts to 15 mph?


Check the fluid in the differential, and when you can, get a small sample of the heavy oil that is in there, and see if there is any ground up metal in it.
Shake the drive shaft back and forth where it enters the differential, there should be just a little looseness. If these is just a little,
please check the u-joints on the drive shaft.
Sounds like one has failed.
Normally you can grab the u-joint and shake it, and feel the looseness, however, you may choose to look more closely and disconnect each u-joint partly to see if there is bearing failure.
For every differential failure, there are about 25 or more u-joint failures.
Be blessed.

1991 toyota pick up makes a weird sound when i drive


The proplem with your car is the propellr shaft universal joint and possibly the rear wheel bearing. Get the mechanic to help you check your propeller universal joint and your rea wheel bearing. A defective propeller universal joint is very risky and if it pulls, this might cause fatal accident. I wish you the best.

if it is the pinion bearing located near the drive shaft it could cause slack and thump the drive shaft. with the truck jacked up the driveshaft would be sloppy near the rear up and down.

Axel Change?


I had the same issue and had it fixed for free based on my warranty. I don't remember the name of the part, but it wasn't the axel. From what I was told, it was a common problem, but not common enough to issue a recall. I recommend talking to a few different Saturn retailers. Good luck.
