So...been driving her the past 3 days and got to say it's a blast

So far, adjusted the brake pedal so no more slop when I go apply the brakes;),
Tune done...
Battery relocated. Done
Rewired headlights and Gps speedo. Done
Need rear seat covers and belts for the kids to cruise to some shows.
Alignment tomorrow morning!!
And having a friend come by Friday to see if he can rub out some dents so I can have my bro-in-law flat clear it.


Need help with one issue,
I'm getting that "clunk" noise, the one Zian was mentioning in the rear..... Only in reverse or slow turns.....
I jacked the car and the u joints were solid, Zian had the diff out and gone through/service and said it was all good... (I hope).
Any ideas?
It's had the rear brakes converted to disk..... Thinking maybe rear hub bearing? Not torqued to the Rt spec? Has techno toy rear coils on it. No rear sway bar.

That's about it for this week

Can't always tell from looking/moving them. They don't take long to remove, so...


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Personally, I've had some clunk that I couldn't see were bad until I took them out. Being in there sort of keep them "bound up". Just a thought...

Some rear coliovers make noise at a certain height, because the spring hits the body/seam ... So lowering or raising the car might help

Anyone running an r160 CLSD? Wondering what fuild it takes? Friction additive? I have some Royal purple gear oil, not sure if it has the additive already in.....
Thinking Maybe it has the wrong Fluid in making my diff a bit noisy.

So...I did some more investigation today on my r160 clsd rear diff. It seams like maybe the output shaft bearing is bad. The diff was really hot after a short normal drive home from work. Sounds like a hub bearing but it's coming for dead center of the car....

I have a spare r160 clsd, that came with the car... I opened the case and it all looks pretty good, turns nice and smooth, no play, both axles are turning in the same direction :).
..looks like 39:11 is stamped on the gear.

Any test I should do before swapping it out? Trying to see if the 1/2 shaft stubs will bolt it? Not sure what to look for between the 2.
What to do before I pull out the old one?
Here's a few pics.

so I pulled/dropped the rear diff out yesterday, going to be dropping it off to have it rebuilt. The output shaft bearing is defiantly bad. hoping for a quick turn around.      

 

also rerouted the fuel lines in a more sensible route. 

 

have a couple more mechanical "fixes" to do and change so I can feel a little more confident when driving her.  I'm looking forward to enjoying her this summer.

 

next on the list is...

re covering the rear seats, put seat belts back there for the kids.

wet sanding the entire car and having my brother-in-laws body shop do a matt or semi clear to protect the "patina"

 scrap an re-do the under coating.

 

that should keep me busy while I'm cruising.

So oust replaced all the bearings in my rear, going to drive her this week than change the fluid. So far she seams ok, I'm hearing every little sounds now thinking it's the diff! I need to remember there's no rear interior at all, headliner and truck material to soften every creek, clank, twists and stuff. Need to just drive her and stop worrying already!!! lol.
