Rear diff noise
Posted 21 September 2004 - 04:19 PM
Here's the key...when I put the car in Four-Wheel drive, the noise dissapears. I lifted the car - an 88 GL wagon - and had a friend rock the right rear wheel back and forth and the noise seems to come from the front part of the differential.
Thanks for any help.

I dont know why actuating 4wd would make any difference, but I had the same symptoms in my 93 Loy.
The solution was replacing the rear wheel bearings. I wouldn't jump to that conclusion until you ruled out some other things, but you should consider that possibility.
good luck, John
