Loud grinding/rattling noise coming from back of truck

Postby devildog28 » Tue Nov 11, 2008 6:43 pm

Extremely loud noise coming from rear of truck, escpecially when starting or stopping. I just replaced u-joints last year and they're still good. the only thing I can think of is that my rear axle pinion bearing is worn out. I noticed my pinion seal is leaking so maybe it got some dirt in there.

Any ideas?

You might need to take the diff cover off, check to see if the pinion , or the ring gear has missing teeth. It really sounds like you need some fluid in the diff housing .
