It make a popin noise when your in the gas or a howling sound when letting off slowing down and creeping make a grind pop it be hesitant..

And worse cases your hear gear teeth breaking or metal on metal slipping where its messing the tips of the teeth up ... Ull need to pop off the rear-end housing cover make sure there no metal in your gear oil if no metal fill back up with a thinker gear oil see if that helps the noises if not then its upgrade time

thanks dude i gota check that out. its been making poping sounds here and there especially on bumps and stuff. i chaged the shocks and struts so its not that. i also know my fuel door doesnt close properly because its dented inside the fuel door so that dent wont let it lock right. so idk if it can be the door bouncing around hitting the car wen im driving

Does it only pop on bumps and when ur completely stopping? If so then it's prolly a control arm bushing.

Well if it only happens on bumps wouldn't be your rear end and if you got new shocks .. could possibly be bad bushings

Kinda along the same lines; mine kinda whines and grinds around sharp corners when warmed up. What exactly is that? I've never gotten to open it up.

Re: rear end bad?

Mine did the same thing and it was a upper control bushing. Id check into that first. They kinda suck to change but they are pretty cheap so its a good place to start.

I'm pretty sure it will fit but I'm not positive.
