Check the pinion nut for tightness, they're known to come loose.


I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

Pinion bearings growl from start to hwy speed is the only common issue that I know of, whether nut comes loose or not.

place rear of truck on jack stands

remove rear wheels and brake drums

disconnect driveshaft

pinion shaft should turn smoothly

if it turns with any jerky motion , pinion bearings and/or axle assembly is bad

this applies to any replacement axle assembly as well , it MUST turn smooth at the pinion shaft

Limited slips tend to break the retainer clips and grind on the housing.
