Alright im curious wtf is that sound that comes out of my right rear wheel whenever i roll out of first gear or when i slowly roll in reverse???? I think i might have stripped one of the gears in the differential. Whats funny its only 1st gear and when im at a stand still and i begin to roll 1st it goes.......clank..clank..clank..and then it goes away..! Weird Something has to be under some stress and i am just clueless to what this could and wonder if anyone has experienced this irritating noise and its not loud where someone can notice. Its one of those things that if your a car freak can hear...HeLp!! :cry:

Sounds like you need some differential fluid conditioner. Or you could change it out completely with Amsoil or Mobil 1 Synthetic.

A Clicking sound can be fixed by greasing the splines on the hub. C4C5specialist has talked about this in the past. :z:

I agree with Z11409, could be something as simple as the emergency brake cable getting caught on something. I just found mine rubbing on an interior wheel weight- huge noise, easy fix.

This happened on mine but it was a ticking sound not a loud clank. Like IT L GO said lubing the spline solved the ticking problem on mine.

What would the splines look like???? Not familiar with this.
Remove the rear wheel. Then remove the large nut on the axle. The splines are in the axle shaft that goes through the hub. I used a spay lubricant. Be sure to re tourque that nut. I believe it was 118 LB/ FT but you should check to be sure. :cheers:

I found my old question to C4C5specialist. This was his response.


HI there, Sodian,
I would suggest that maybe you have a little rust buildup in between the splines of your rear driveaxles to your hub assemblies.
This would create the noise that you are experiencing.
I would simply remove the rear center caps of your wheels, and remove the 34mm nut that retains the axle to the hub bearing.
Spray a little WD40 or similar lubricant inside the spline area and let sit for about 5 mins.
Then retorque the rear axle to 118 ft lbs.
See if the noise is still there afterwards.
Allthebest, c4c5 is what we do

I had a noise VERY similar to yours - drove me nuts for about a month. I had many others listen to it with all sorts of ideas.

I finally took it into the dealership because I started to notice it about a month after I had a Brake job done and thought maybe that was related.

Turned out the suspension (I'm thinking the rear left shock) was lose and causing a knocking noise when "loaded" and "unloaded". The tech re-torqued everything and all is well now (that was about 2 months ago).

Give it a try - cheap resolution!

JoeS, thanks for the heads up.... that sounds good because i have been doing a lot of raising and lowering on my car, just to get it at the right height, so that could be a possibility, ill check that out. By the way did you manage to get the spec's on how much you have to torque it to from the mechanic. Thanks muchos!!!
