|drakkhen20||just get a good grip on the drive shaft and see if it has any play as far as front to rear and up and down. if it wiggles your bearing is probably shot, but that would make it roar though, but its a good thing to check since your crawling under there anyway.|

|HollowPoint429||I'll be under the rear tonight since I need to get it inspected tomorrow and straight pipes don't fly to good up in pa haha so I'll check the e brake bracket tonight and the cable. Can I check the pinion by just looking under it or do I need to open up the rear?|
|June 11th, 2013 07:11 PM|
|drakkhen20||yes the ebrake cable does run on the very top of the drive shaft housing . that figured man. evey time I go look at one of my friends cars they do the same thing.lol if its something in the rear end you might be able to feel it in the bottom of your seat. check your pinion lately ? if you have a stock shaft you might want to check the balancer on it to see if its loose.|

well you know what you gotta do at this point. put her on blocks and put her in gear and start hitting stuff ( suspintion wise lol.) see what happens. unless you have a 4 point car lift. that would be nice in my case.

but it is a grinding though right? like gear grinding or rock grinding or what ?
|June 10th, 2013 08:27 PM|
this is much louder. i understand what your saying about the rotation and torque of the motor but i have a good half inch or more of clearance between the bell housing and header. also it does it even if im just barely on the gas, i know the motor cant be torquing that much when im just giving it 1/8th throttle.
could it be a bushing in the rear? im leaning more and more towards something in the suspension because it will do it over speed bumps and rough roads even when im off the gas

|drakkhen20||lol. I had the same thing happen to me on my 07 gt when I put longtubes on it. im telling you it would sound the same way and it only did it bad if there were two people in the car and I was accelerating. basicly the only thing I could think of that explained it was. when you accelerate your rear end isn't the only thing under a load. your motor mounts are compensating the engine twisting and your trans mount is holding the tailshaft housing from bowing up. if your headers are tight and you push the gas the tailshaft housing moves up slighty from the force thus making the headers lightly rub enough to make that "grinding" or rattling noise but not enough to make any sign of it. sounds weird right? think about it for a while. if your that concerned about it. jack the ass end up and make sure its secure and put it in gear and have a buddy rev on it and switch gears and let off, slow the tires down and accel again so on and so forth til you find that sound. the only thing there is that your rear end wont have a bind but your engine will as I tried to describe above. hope this none sense helped lol.|

Grinding while under load
ive had this grinding for the past couple months now and i cant seem to figure out where its coming from or what it is. i did have a problem with my right side header rubbing against the flange on my lakewood bellhousing but i got that taken care of and i still have it. it seems to be worse/more often when i have a passenger or extra weight in the car compared to when its just me (although it still does it occasionally with just me in the car). my starter is tight and i cant see any place that my exhaust would be rubbing. i was thinking maybe my control arms or a bushing? it doesnt grind when im coasting or when the clutch in in just when i give it gas and put the rear under load.
anyone have any similar experience? im at a loss
