This noise is about to drive me crazy. I can't get it to stop. I have checked the rear diff mounts and they all look good. I also have the support brace on the rear diff. I have put grease on all the bushings. The diff is full of oil. Its not the suspension. It sounds like its coming from the boss where the drive shaft goes into the rear diff. I packed it with grease not to long ago. Has anyone ever had this problem?

This sound makes it sound ragged when I hit the gas. Take a listen below.

didn't watch the video but the union nut might be loose, if your pull the boot off of the driveline where the disc brake is and oil comes out it is loose. pull axles, pull diff and tighten nut. mine was kinda loose i would lose a few drops of oil, but no sound.

will watch video when home

no oil... just black grease behind that boot.

Check where the driveshaft splines meet into the intermediate coupler for the rearend ....the part that the brake rotor is attached to ....may be the splines are rounded off like mine were ...and we have a bulletproof cure for it as some of you know about ...Lance

This completely eliminates that splined joint issue
