Well guys, got front drive shaft put in and the new heim joints on. The moment of truth.... the noise is......

STILL THERE.


There is yet another video of the noise. I have no idea what we could be talking about here any more. I am at a loss.

Here is another video, this one sounds bad. Even worse than before. In neutral with machine off.

Well that doesn't sound good
No it doesn't. I have the kiss of death, every time I touch the machine it sounds worse. But then again, as I am tightening everything up, it may be putting more pressure on the issue... I don't know. Just trying to reason with myself at this point.

I think it's time to get a mechanics stethoscope, so you can pinpoint the location of the noise.

Yeah, rear u joints are good. I mean as much as I can focus my attention on a spot the noise sounds like it is coming from the wheel end of the axles.

I actually did not test it with front driveshaft out just because I had the front diff all unbolted and sitting all funky up in there until I had it replaced.

I'll say again.... Get a mechanics stethoscope. It's a great tool for narrowing down the actual location of a noise.

you can also use a long screwdriver or anything long and solid, but will be a challenge if you have to "find it" while its moving.. maybe you can support the whole vehicle on jack stands (tires off the ground) and check that way...hope you get it figured out!

Thabk you. I actually cannot get the sound to replicate when vehicle is in the air. Seems to happen most often when going slowly (forward or reverse) and turning.
