It very well could be an issue with the differential or you may have a bad bearing. easiest well to tell is to lift the rear of the truck and spin the wheel(s) by hand. a growling noise will indicate to you where the issue is. while you are working on it (level ground) check the level of the oil in the differential case.

2004 Chevy Tahoe rearend out of line


The rear sway bars have not been replaced. When you look at the driver side rear the tire is even looks like it not stright. I can see where the tire is scrubbing the inside where the i believe it the control arm mounts to the frame. When you look at the rear of the tahoe while its on level ground it leans to the L side. When i measure the height of the frame from the ground there is about 1 inch difference. Also measuring from center of front wheen to the center of rear wheel there is about 1 1/2 inches difference. Any other Ideas? I am taking it to a shop to have the frame checked to make sure its not bent.

My u joint broke and right before my rear end shuttered now after replacing u joint truck wont move but tows just fine


Try jacking up the whole back end, disconnect the u-joint and see if you can move the rear end by turning the tires and turning the input shaft of the rear end. If the rear end is free you most likely have a problem with your transmission or transfer case. One of those could have locked up, locking up your rearend making it feel like a shudder in the rearend, then breaking the weak link between the two (the u-joint). Hope this helps.

When i take off from a stop my rear end clicks then feels like a foward jerking, 2004 GMC safari cargo van.


DISCONNECT YOUR DRIVE SHAFT FROM THE REAREND THEN TURN YOUR REAR BY HAND AND IF YOU STILL HEAR CLICKING OR GRINDING
DETERMINE FROM SIDE OR MIDDLE. IF NOT BRAKES THEN REAREND BEARINGS. THESE REARS WERE FAMOUS FOR REAR BEARINGS.
AFTER REPAIR INSTALL SYNTHETIC FLUIDS.

**** in power train or rearend


Most likely getting a little wear on the rear pinion, and you are experiencing the backlash from the gears. Put the vehicle in neutral (off) with the parking brake on and twist your drive shaft back and forth. There should be minimal play. If there is a bunch, you have a rearend rebuild in your near future.

Will 95 jeep gc rearend work in 97?


As long as they are the same rearend and the same gears, yes. ie a 9.25 rear with 3.92 gears will not work where a Dana 44 with 3.55 gears was.

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Rear End problems


Hello, well you can look at it in a few different ways. Like you stated you can get a rear end from a salvage yard and not know what you are getting, you can spend some big bucks to get a new rear end, or you can get it rebuilt. I feel getting it rebuilt will be the better option. If you get it rebuilt you will have new parts in the rear end and know what you have verses the cost of a new rear end. This of course depends on how much damage there is in the rearend. Economically I feel that having it rebuilt is the best option. I always get nervouse when putting in any used part because you don't know what you are getting. If you do get it rebuilt make sure they put in new bearings which any reputible shop should anyways.

I would check for a broken springs, very common. As for the missing, is there a check engine light on?
