Rear end noise

Post by nicholasa631 on Thu Aug 15, 2013 7:47 pm

So under light acceleration and low speed as well as higher rpm in First gear and only sometimes under high rpm in second gear I have a noise coming from the rear end of the car. I want to say it sort of sounds like it might be coming from the center to the right side. I just got the car back from the shop and they found the lower control arm bushings were basically shot in the rear end so had them replaced with ford racing lower control arms. The only things I think it could be is 1)a wheel bearing although I think it was replaced last year will have to check on that 2)something in the axle or the rear gears 3) something else that I can't think of. Any suggestions or thoughts on what it could be

No, its more of the easiest way to describe it is if you drive over a metal grate. its that sort of noise. I know thought the net its hard to hear it in your head but think of it as a sort of light tink, not a heavy hetal hitting metal noise

could be bad pinion bearings, but that's a noise that requires me to test drive to verify...how many miles on the car??

I'm just over 87k. I just heard from a buddy who says that it could possibly be a tooth on a rear gear. I'm just worried of over spending and all in chasing just partial symptoms rather then the main cause. The shop did do several test drives and only came up with the control arms

I should also say I might hear the noise 2 or 3 times and then its gone, on a very rare occasion I'd hear it a 4th time but thats about it

wouldn't be a tooth, why you ask??? that problem would exist all the time....not intermitent........if it's intermitent, live with it until it becomes more frequent, if you can't live with that idea then you got to pay to play

Very true, I guess my only concern was pushing the car hard. Although I can live with a little noise and either turn the music up or have the car move faster and let the engine do its thing

So have you added a custom exhaust, I had a fit with mine, sounded like the rear going bad, just a pipe vibrating off the frame, it took a wile of re positioning the exhaust befor I got it right, Paul had the same thing, he was sure the rear was going out on his car, and panicking over it, I had him take me for a ride and as soon as I heard it I knew it was just the exhaust, we re positioned it and no more problem.
Having said that, know this, the exhaust on these cars gets extremely hot, and the pipes can move as far as 1 or 2 inches when it gets hot, so it can be tough to find where its hitting, if thats what it is, it took me weeks to figure it out because in the time it took for me to stop the car and jump out and look under it, the pipes had moved back away from where they were hitting.

interesting, and good point. I understand the pipes can move, before I did have the problem with the pipes where they joined towards the middle. Since then I had tightened down all the bolts with the exhaust system and used a little locktight on the bolts to keep them in place. Its just a pain in the ass since the noise is only at low rpm when I'm in first gear or in neutral at low speeds for a while.

I had forgotten to post the final outcome of what the issue. It turns out it was the TPMS had come undone from the double sided tape. So the TPMS was bouncing off the tire and hitting the wheel

Wow, how quickly did they determine that, hopefully it wasnt to costly looking at all the other issues they thought it may have been......
