First check for anything that is broke or loose on you truck. That includes your spare tire that is underslung your frame at the back. Remember that even a small movement can translate into something louder by time it hits the cab.

I have noticed a clunk type noise/feel in the rear end after taking off from a stop. Tonight a really bad grinding/clunking sound both in drive and reverse, ion gear or neutral. I've been reading...


if the diff is not leaking oil there should be no reason to be low. If you hear a noise in neutral with the truck not moving, its not in the rear end. it may be the trans or transfer case.

99 dodge ram van 3500 rear end loud nose when the veh is moving, i have checked the rear oil and it is full.


It could be bad pinion bearings, broken spider gears, etc. inside the differential. It could also be an axle bearing. Check the insides of your rear wheels to see if there is any rear-end grease coming out near the wheel end of the axle. If there is oil coming out, then you have a bad wheel bearing. Otherwise, you will have to remove the differential cover to check for metal particles in the rear end and to see if there are any broken gears.

There is a clanging noise when i put it in gear and can hear it while driving is it the rear end or universal joint


Check rear-end fluid level and play in rear pinion gear.
Check universal joints for play. If play is in pinion gear change rear end fluid and add a full bottle of LUCAS oil stabilizer, will quiet rear end noise.

I have a clunk in my 2005 (5.3)silverado rear end. Have had the noise since I bought the truck. The Chevy Dealership couldn't duplicate the noise but I still can hear it when I drive through town and it...


It could be as simple as the exhaust bumping the rear end.
Or the trailer ball hitch rattling inside the receiver! (I had one customer wanted me to weld it so it wouldn't rattle any more!)

Slide under there, don't jack up the truck it will change the normal ride clearance. There should be a few inches of clearance between the exhaust pipe and the rear end. Move it around see if it bumps the rear end or the frame.

It could also be a bad U joint, grab the drive shaft near the U joints and move it around, if either is bad you'll see it moving. The caps that connect to the drive shaft have needle bearings inside them, if they're bad it will move or clunk at the cap, near the rubber seal.

Or it could be a little excessive end play in the rear end. Some cars/trucks are noisier than others. USUALLY not a big issue. It could clank for years. Just annoying.

Rear End in a 2000 silverado moning whenever I turn a corner.


I would suggest a rear differential service. When the fluid breaks down in the rear it doesn't provide the proper lubrication for the rear and you'll hear the "moan". Don't forget to buy and add the limited slip(posi-trac) additive.

As far as the rear end noise, There was a TSB released on GMC light duty trucks that says "Some owners of light duty trucks equipped with automatic transmissions may comment that the vehicle exhibits a clunk noise when ******* between Park and Drive, Park and Reverse, or Drive and Reverse... Whenever there are two or more gears interactin with one another, there must be a certain amount of clearance between those gears in order for the gears to operate properly. This clearance of freeplay (also known as lash) can translate into a clunk noise whenever the gear is loaded and unloaded quickly, or whenever the direction of rotation is reversed." It goes onto say "...Whilse some owners may find the clunk objectionable, this will not adversely affect durability or performance."
