Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1999 Chevy Suburban V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 124000 miles
I have a 1999 2wd (limited slip) Chevy Suburban 1500 with 126,000 miles.
My issue is with the rear end. In Deccember of 2007 the rear end went out and I had it completely rebuilt. In May of 2008 the transmission failed and I had the dealership repace it with a brand new unit (not remanufactered).
Since all of this work has been completed I have a very noticeable thunk in the rear of the vehicle that can be both heard and felt, which gets progressively louder and more consistant the longer you drive the vehicle and apply the brakes. The noise becomes more pronounced as the truck warms up and occurs when stopping as well as when releasing the brake to move forward.
In everyday driving it is noticeable but in hour + of stop and go traffic on the LA freeway it is almost scary.
I have had the brakes pulled and re-done, I have had the stabilizer and spring bushings replaced all to no avail. The only thing that we have found is a slight leak in the axle seal on the rear passenger side.
At this piont I am completely at a loss and am not sure where to go next.
