Question about Ford Thunderbird
I have a 96 4.6 V8 Thunderbird, when I take off and when weight shifts in the car, i hear a grinding noise from the rear end. The more people or weight in the car, the louder the sound. The sound is a grinding noise, metal on metal. does anyone know what this maybe ???
Sounds like a busted strutt try jacking it up and shake the rear wheel if goes sides to side easily its strutt up and down its a wheel bearing.

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds
You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

When driving normally transmission surges like it is not in gear. Had sensors replaced, nitural safety switch, and still acts up.
