  • Drivers Side Rear Noise When Turning

    When I take out my '63 GT the very first left turn I hear a sort of "clunk" out of the rear end, sounds more like drivers side, but not completely sure. It does this every time I take that first turn, just after departing a location. It won't do it after that until cold again. No other noise, whines, clatters, etc. Is this the TT clutches? Should I be concerned?

    Most likely the TT clutches. Very disturbing sound but not a big deal. I completely eliminated the problem by removing the cover on my Dana, flushing out old fluid and refilling with Redline synthetic. It went from really loud to gone.

      Guess if it's the fluid, that rules out the 2x4 you chock the wheels with, huh?

        BigE, what do you flush the diff with, and how?

          I like parts cleaner and a brush, followed several cans of brake cleaner. In my experience, you don't need to get every internal piece spotlessly clean- just get all you can and fill.

          This has worked for me many times over the years with other brands. If Studes are different, someone will post that.

            Don't forget to add the small bottle of additive for the TT.

              I've used the additive plenty of times, but do you still need it with Redline or some of the other modern fluids?

                I tried a flush and refill with std gear oil and the additive and it did lessen the chatter but after 50 miles or so on the highway it would surface again. The redline with no additive made it go away under all driving conditions.

                  Redline makes some "good stuff"......Their MTL (manual transmission lube) has no equal for smoothness and noise reduction.

                    I took the cover off on a Sunday afternoon after joy riding for about an hour. Then I left it to drain until I was back in the garage in a few days. I spayed some parts cleaner around in there and wiped out waht I could. New gasket and refilled.
