Rincon. Why is there grinding noise in rear end and rear wheels will not drive?


Could be bad u-joints, wheel bearings. Raise rear of vehicle and rotate wheel by hand, if noisy remove and replace. Hope that helps.

Rear end problems


If you are definitely sure it is coming from the rear end you have to remove the rear end cover. You will see the condition of the fluid check the fluid while that is being done. You will have a bird's eye view of the condition of the ring and pinion gears and the pinion bearings. The rumble from the rear end is usually a bad pinion bearing.

If you're not sure it is the rear, another often overlooked problem is the rear universal joint on the drive shaft. You have to remove the drive shaft to check the pinion bearing so you'll find the "U" joint is bad right then and there. If the joint is bad, don't cheese out, get both of them replaced.

Loud noise when put into drive


If it is one big clunk then it might just be the universal joint that connects the drive shaft to the rear end. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with bad U-joints. If they break the whole drive shaft falls out. If the front u joint breaks it can act like a pole vault for your vehicle.

Clanking Noise in rear end,when I start from a Dead stop,


I recommend an inspection of all universal joints or CV(constant volocity) joints, whichever apply on the vehicle! A quick inspection of the rear suspension at the same time should reveal the source of the unusual noises that you describe.
A reputable service shop will do the inspection for free or for a minimal fee.
Have a great day!

Noise in Reverse


Transfer case would only be if you are in 4 wheel drive. this sounds like a rear end or u joint issues. Get under the truck and grab the drive line, if you are able to turn it more then a 1/4 inch each way bad u joints. If not then check the rear end.

Rear end noise when i let off the throttle


Check the U joints, there more common to go bad then the differential, unless you are low on differential fluids. You can take it to a drive line shop and have them replace the u joints and differential fluid and also have them readjust the ring and pin in the differential to give you more life out of the rear end. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Check the U Joints in the Drive Shaft and the Rear End. Sometimes the Rear end U Joint can be Bad and sound like the Tranny.
