Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1978 Chevy Corvette V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 29000 miles
please help! Mechanics have bleed me dry! Previous mechanic didnt put positrac additive in defferential and caused clutch pack damage. Found issue and put in additive but havnt replaced clutch pack. Previous noises around corners have gone(another mechanic replaced hub!) But now if I put my foot hard to the floor when taking off (in a straight line or corner) the car will make a loud grinding noise and have no power until I back off and take off slower, I believe if I put my foot to the floor while driving it will also ake this same noise and have no power(up hills etc makes it worse I believe. Or it requires more power and the chance the noise comes back is higher) the noise sounds like when my car scrapes the road on a high point. Horrible metal on metal crunching sound. I cant locate if its coming from front or rear. All new belts were recently placed on the vehicle and I believe they need tightening? Could they slip and cause this noise?
any help would be appreciated
