I wanted to get a discussion going before I tear into the rear end (mostly because I don't know when I'm going to tear into it and I love driving the car).
Anyone who was near me at Timmayfest heard the horrible noises. Think of an empty aluminum soda (pop) can that you are wrinkling with your hand, not crushing, just wrinklink. Thats the sound.
Here is other pertanent info
Last summer I put all new rear suspension in. Every moving part with a bushing got repaced with new peices, there are only about 5K miles on all parts.
This is in exception 2 the rear control arms which had the bushings pressed out and monoballs installed.
I have older KWV3 coilovers
Brembo 4 piston BBK on the rear
New wheel bearings
New parking brake pads/springs/etc.
The outside CV joint on the drivers axle is leaking
parking brake works well
Hear is a fascinating point.....it only does it when the car is hot/warm. When i get in the car in the morning it is silent, all the way through my 10 mile commute to work. The longer I drive the worse it gets
It doesn't seem to make any noise when the car is smooth, only during accel/decel jerkiness and sometimes over bumps. Front to back motion seems to make it occur more, as I can't really get the car to crunch by jostling it with my body weight when parked.
Any thoughts? It seems like whatever idea I have there are several symptoms that prove that idea wrong. Maybe there are several things wrong, maybe all my new parts are shot. No idea.
Thanks for any input or thoughts.
