    It looks like the pinion gear was contacting the carrier.

    That will be interesting to see how that pinion looks when you get the carrier out.

    On the broken gears they are the factory ones
    On the aftermarket. I have no idea
    I Just hate the noise it makes
    And everytime it hits 80mph. The noise is gone
    And it's there only when I step on the gas

    Another thing. Idk if it's possible. But when I hade my z28 I changed the oil on the rear end
    I put Lucas gear oil and after that it was doin the same noise.
    Idk if it's the oil. Or if it's just coinsidence
    On the ss I put Lucas too

    Yes I did. And the Lucas oil has already the additive.
    So on the ss I put the posi/trac aditive
    And on the z28 I didn't
    So u think that's why it's making the noise ?

    Could be part of the problem since you need that in there. I have taken apart an eaton locker for a truck before but never tore into the carrier itself to get a look at it. I imagine the clutches aren't very happy when turning sharply.

    I tought that could be the reason
    And I was told that the camaros have posi traction right?
    They dnt have posi clutches.
    So they don't need the additive.
    What could be a good gear oil?
    Besides the Lucas cuz I think that's the problem

    They are lockers not positraction. Get the oil the factory recommends and make sure it has the fluid additive.
