Full Version: pop from the rear axle

I was driving my car a little earlier, got on it and heard a loud pop come from the rear end. When I hit the breaks it poped again. When I got home If I pushed the car from side to side I got the same pop noise. It used to just be a little thud nose (normal). Now its loud. I checked the u-joints they are ok, Checked the wheels and are tight. Is the stock rear finally giving out? Maybe bearings? It really doesnt matter as I have a good 3.73 8.8 and a good 3.55 8.8 to swap in. Just dont want to see my tire passing me going down the road. [Image: smile.gif]

Bearings usually make a rumbling noise.Pick up the rear & poke around.Could be control arm bushings? A lift would be nice.
