Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1967 Pontiac GTO V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 122000 miles
For over 2 years I have had an undercar noise that generally occurs within the first few miles at low speeds. The noise is described as "something binding up then a clunk or pop followed by a squeel or hiss. This usually lasts just a very short time (30 seconds) and then goes away." Two years ago, a mechanic repacked my front wheel bearings and replaced my water pump. Problem still existed. A year ago, I replaced my front shocks. No cure. Six months ago it dawned on me that maybe it's my u joints since they had not been replaced in over 30 years. I replaced the U joints with greaseable joints and the problem seemed to go away for 6 months until yesterday. Then I heard the symptoms twice after an hour long drive. Any suggestions on what component might be causing my problem? Incidentally, I bought this GTO new 43 years ago!
