My car has had this problem ever since I bought it used two years ago. When I begin driving, the car responds well; everything is firm and ready to go. However, after driving a few miles through different turns the rear end makes a horrible whining noise ONLY while turning hard. I've replaced wheel bearings and upper rear control arm bushings. I've read about gear whine and degredation of spider gears, but there where never any metallic fragments in the diff oil when changing it. I replaced the oil with Royal Purple (has friction modifier in it) and still the noise peraists. The noise gets worse and worse the more I turn throughout my route but if left parked for several hours, the noise is gone for the first few miles of my trip until I inevitably make enough turns to trigger the noise. What is the cause of this noise and how do I fix it?
have the same problem?
