called a shop and they said to check the U joint and see if it moves left or right, seems to be very tight. So they say it might be the 3rd member. Called around and places charging me around 800 for a rebuild. Should I just go buy a whole used rear end? Some mustang yard is charging me 450 w/ 100 day guarantee. Money is tight. Whats the best way to go?
The "best way to go" is to determine, the best you can, where the noise is coming from. Does the noise come on when going slowly? If so, maybe someone can jog alongside while you coast to determine if its on either side or the middle. Try to eliminate as many variables as possible before paying someone to do the same thing.
yea i drove around and opened my car door and i was going about 5 mph and the clicking noise seems to be coming from right where the drive shaft meets the rear end. So im going to check the gear oil level first hopefully thats it if not ill have to either pull the 3rd member out but i dont want to mess it up even more because of my inexperience, should I just bring it in to the shop? I mean I am somewhat mechanically inclined I usually do all the work myself unless I need like serious shop tools.
