HELP-ASAP-PLZ Clunking Noise
I have a 94 GT that I've got a clunking noise coming from & can't find it.
Here's the dilemma. I recently had all New 2.5" Exhaust installed. I also replaced the Shocks, Rotors & Brake Pads. I've double checked everything & it's all good and tight.
I hear this Clunking Sound in between each Gear Shift as the car is kind of idling down. The sound seems louder when I'm going into 3rd & 4th gear more so than in 1st & 2nd....but you still hear it a little in 1st & 2nd.
I noticed a shiny ring around my drive shaft where it looks like it rubs on something but I can't see anything within 1" of it that could hit it. That's the only thing I'm seeing.
So...........since I can't see anything with the car parked (not running).
I'm wondering if I could possibly put jack stands under the axle & take the wheels off
& run the car through the gears to see if I can find the problem or at least detect where the noise is coming from. ***Only reason I said take the wheels off is so I can see if it has anything to do with the brakes.
I've never started a car while it was on stands before so not sure if it's ok to do it. I'm not sure if the car would move or fall off the stands when I shift gears as I'd need to go through the gears to see what's happening.
Let me know ASAP Plz as I'm trying to fix this at this very moment.
THX All !!!
