CV joint....same noise here. Replaced both half axles and the noise is gone. Others have reported the same issue and resolution.
So, ive driven nearly 400 miles in the car today, and its still silent.
Im gonna put my neck on the block and say its fixed!!!
CJGT350 had it right in the 1st reply to the thread, so thanks
However, im still happy with my order of work and fault elimination, and this is what I would recommend to others. Starting with the cheapest and easiest and working up to $$$
Most of these could be done by one shop in one appointment if you went prepped.
1) Check half-shaft retaining bolts and even but new ones. Torque to 150lb ft + 45 degress with LocTite.
2) Check rear brake pad springs not fouling
3) Check all bolts on rear end. Pay close attention to the diff carrier bushings. They were not the source of my noise, but I discovered mine were shot at 40k miles on inspection.
4) Replace half-shafts. I went for Ford Racing GT350 items because
a) why not
b they are beefier than stock
c) they are good value
Good luck any peeps with this problem in the future.
