Have you ever had the gear oil changed in the rear diff ? Your positrack differential needs a special additive added to the gearlube to prevent that problem. If you have changed the gear oil but not added the special additive just add a couple of bottles to the rear axle. If the rear diff has never been serviced it is time to drain and refill using the proper oil and additive. The limited slip additive should be available from the dealer or your local auto parts store. I would put in at least 2 bottles of additive if it is acting up now.

Not on a 2500/3500 - they use a Trac-Rite differential, which does the power transfer with gears, not clutches.

Wonder if it's in four wheel drive? My neighbor bought a 4X4 Toyota SUV. Asked me why it bound up on sharp turns. It was in four wheel drive for weeks.

This is possible but there would be feed back in steering wheel too because the Ujoint in front axle are not constant velocity in a turn. The toyota likely had CV's in front so all they felt was it tightening up. Good point though. ----------------- TheSnoMan.com

Could be a hub bearing, could be the U-joint. If the noise gets worse as the steering is turned hard left or hard right, but subsides when the wheels are straight, it's the U-joint. If it's the same no matter the position of the steering, it's the hub bearing.

Figures it would have to be the more expensive part, right?

Oh yes those bastard hubs. Dodge used a simular design in the 70's with fulltime 4x4 drive. They were a pain to work on then and now. If you tear it down to have bearing service I would replace ujoint while you are in there where it needs it or not because they are always spinning with that design. Use some aftermarket ones that are greaseable. ----------------- TheSnoMan.com
