pappy127 Posted October 9, 2009 Share Posted October 9, 2009 I recently replaced the front carrier on a 86 R model with a rebuilt unit. The old one had busted the ring and pinion gear under a heavy load. Ran the truck a couple of short trips and the rear end seems to be making a chunking sort of sound under load again. At times the sound seems to be emanating from the tranny/clutch area and other times from the new rearend. I was wondering if the peanuts might have been put in backwards to cause this. The reason I wonder is the guy that picked up the rear for me mentioned something about the guys doing the rebuild didn't seem too sure while they were doing the job. He was watching at the time. Thank you for any help on this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
