Got the car up off the wheels today. Ran it in gear, wheels spinning.
Nothing conclusive listening through a hose to each hub. Not much via a rod either.
After a while, I did catch a couple mettalic creaks. I checked the driveshaft after shutting it down. On the rear universal joint, one of the cross shaft seals is gone. Bare shiny metal and rust powder. Hmmmmm.
