Re: weird sound when driving?

whats done is done, driving long periods of time could potentially wear on your ring and pinion but realistically you still may have years on your rear end left dependant on severity... you may also have a week, I dont know.

Re: weird sound when driving?

Any updates? My issue was fixed with spending a grand and a new drive shaft, one of the U-joints was froze solid one direction. Replaced the drive shaft and no more noise or vibration! Had it on the lift and listened to everything and the shop guys had ideas, such as bent rear axle but couldnt find anything. got referred to a Transmission shop that found the U-joint issue.

Re: weird sound when driving?

I had the rearend bearing replaced and it took care of the issue. About a year ago i had to replace the pinion seal, a friend of mine is a mechanic and he has done this many times and properly torqued the nut after replacing the seal.
Basically, because I wasn't aware that the pinion seal was leaking till it was too late, once it was replaced....the damage had been done and the life of the bearings was shortened excessively.

also, the noise of the bearings was progressively getting louder for about 3 months...lol...so, 100% my fault because I was trying to find a more simple/cheaper fix because I didn't want to realize that my rearend was bad at only 55k miles.... lesson learned!

The gears were still fine, so the garage charged me $785 for parts and labor.
