or at least morning for sure
I am not a differential guy
I have had real bad bearings on my axles b4 on my 10 bolts in years past
I dont ever remember a clacking sound per say
I had a differential rebuilt twice becuase if a clicking sound that would drive me nuts
at slow speed that would go away at 20mph in my 86 chevy 4x4
did brakes first still there did axle bearings still there
rebuilt the diff thinkin that swiss watch posi from GM was about to grenade nope
u joints nope .definately coming from the rear under the truck
I finally had the shop owner drive my truck and I walked along side ,,,
yup coming from the wheel ... pop the wheel off 15x10 6lug Boydd alloy rims and 35" goodyears
I asked if we could rotate the tires andcheck the lugs and rim center
as he rolled the tire out to me for inspection
I heard clink in the tire
funkin a ... the dip sheet that mounted my new tires didnt install new steel valve stems at goodyear
when I had my 1200.00 MTRs mounted so when I asked why when I picked up my truck they replied
my old ones were fine... I said NO I requested new as I know the rubber washers deteriate on the steel valve stems
and they had been on the wheels for 2 sets of tires....
dip sheet left one of the rubber seals and its washer inside the tire when he replaced the valve stems as I waited after hours for him........
cost me over a grand for that bull krap..........
just sayin dont overlook the easy stuff I guess ..............
things that come to mind youve probably already checked
ebrake cable hangin up on front of driveline
brakes too tight
springs all correct
correct differential lube
had any work done at goodyear lately ?
squeeky hubcap or beauty ring center cap >
I hope you find it soon.... it looks like you have enuf light and access to make the job easier
seems carrier and axle clearances would be a clunk from side to side while driving
please keep us informed .........
