If your speaking of hydrostatic drive,not clutch type,after a lot of use this "sound"becomes a normality.The drive motor(hydraulic)is worn.Mine does the same thing,on all thre of my mowers.I don't concern myself with it.Even my drive motors on my Toyota skidsteer make that same noise.But I know they're ok.Just keep changing the filter on the hydraulics every 100 hours or less.If it doesn't bother operation,just you,then i don't believe anything is really bad wrong.As time goes on,with use,things wear.BUT,they're finding there position is all.Their worn into place.You rarely use reverse,thats why it don't make noise in reverse.But if it bothers you that bad,replace the drive motor everytime it starts making that noise,or replace the mower.

You probably have a limited slip differential. Sounds like the clutch plates in the differential are sticking when you turn corners. I would change the gear oil and add limited slip diferential addative to the diff along with fresh gear oil. If limited slip this will cure your problem.

1989 Suzuki Sidekick rear differentials


GET IT TO A MECHANIC!! Something is loose or about to collapse! Remember that vibration and noise can travel away from the source so get the mechanic to start in that corner.
You need to get the following checked!
-Prop shaft mountings at transfer box.
-Prop shaft mountings at differential.
-Prop shaft bearings.
-Differential condition and oil level.
-Drive shafts at differential end.
-Drive shafts at the wheel end.
-All flexing joints in the system including UV joints and CV joints.

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.

The problem sounds and looks like its in my rear end when i turn left or right my rear end acks like its locked in and my rear tire sqeel but when im driving foward or back it dont act up. it only does...


Sounds like you have a limited slip or " Posi-Traction" rear differential, if this is the case than go to the GM dealer and ask them for a bottle of friction modifier oil for limited slip differential. This stuff is pure whale oil that helps to lubricate the clutches in the differential. After adding the lube find your self a big empty parking lot or other paved surface and drive the vehicle forwards then backwards in a slow figure 8 patern, turn as tight as you can each way, this will force the clutches to work and help limber them up. The differential might make some crunching sounds, but the noise should quit as the lube gets in and does its job.

Rear end noise on 2002 Dodge ram 1500


If you have a positraction differential, you need posi additive along with the new lube. After it's in, take it to a parking lot and make tight left turns then tight right turns to get the lube between the posi plates. That usually frees it up unless there is an actual mechanical problem in the diff.
good luck!

Clanging noise rear and rear don't pull


The axle probably lost a keeper ring on the inside of the differential and the pieces may be going through the differential and ring&pinion gearing making the noises you hear. You will need to drain the oil out, find the broken pieces, and inspect all gearing for broken/damaged teeth, and for any noisy bearings. Flush the case out with cleaning solvent. Re-insert the loose axle after cleaning and inspecting it well--especially the interior end. Replace the keeper (new) on the axle end inside the differential spider gearing. Inspect the brakes on the loose axle side for any oil deposits and for any damage that might have been caused when the axle came out. If the differential is badly damaged, it might be cheaper to find another rear end in a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!

Rear direrintial


The rear diff. turns the rear wheels. It is located in the middle of the rear axle. It won't last long if you ignore it. May just need dearing's but if it is driven the cog wheels will grind to dust or drop off this can cause the rear axle to seize up and can be a danger because the back wheels will lock up. If you are going to fix it yourself let me know and I will be able to guide you through the process

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.
