    Exclamation So get this....

    well i have had a slight clunking noise from my differential on coasting and when going downhill......the other day I was a coasting to a traffic light and heard loud grinding and the clunking was very pronounced....so i took the housing cover off and there are NO shavings, no teeth missing, crystal clear gear fluid....everything looks perfect inside No scratches nothing. I put in new gear fluid, etc drove it and its still there but not as loud. WTF is going on?? Pinion nut???? my u-joints looks good too.

    Did you rotate the rear with the tires in the air to ensure everything was peachy?
