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.
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.
well i had it up on a life all last night trying to figure out why i feel
like i have bindage and the fluid was good the rear breaks were good. but
when i went to the front of the truck and spun the front right tire it
noticed a clicking on every rotation. sounded something like a berring,
has ony one herd of this maybe feeling like bindage or what this could
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.
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
