I think with the brake caliper pin stuck just added to the problems already had. Breaker easy to fix I'm not worried about that I attached a video what the noises that I am hearing while the car is jacked up in the air with the tires removed.

Hi
It could also be a engine performance problem sometimes the motor needs to warm up causing spark plugs or injectors to break down. Let it warm up in your driveway and check engine for rough running or stumble you could even power load it to check engine miss or roughness it doesn't mean it will set a code when it misses.

Thanks
Joe T.

Great job narrowing that down. That is clearly clunking with the rotation of the axle shaft. If you watch the passenger axle shaft it wobbles and you can actually hear it has a double clunk. This means it is a second order vibration or noise. Second order means two anomalies in one rotation. If it were me, I would replace that axle shaft and go from there.

KASEKENNY1 suspected the axle the to be faulty so I bought new ones to put in after the video I uploaded earlier today. I swapped out the passenger side axle and replaced it with the new one, but the noise or the vibration did not go away. So I'm completely stumped.

Bearings in the transmission normally make a growling noise but you must have an issue with the thrust bearing in the differential. If this is the issue it could be allowing the axle to walk like it is. I am surprised that was not the issue but if the axle is new then it is clearly inside the unit. There is no question that this axle is actually making the noise, it is just determining what is causing it to walk like it is and the only way to find that out is to remove the transmission and tear it down. This is not something you will want to do in your driveway. It can be done but is not fun at all.

Thanks for the information. I was so hoping that it wasn't something inside transmission. Thank you guys for helping me with my situation. I think for now I'm just going to put everything back together and park it in the garage until a later date.

Understood. Thanks for the update. Please let us know what happens whenever you get back to it. We would love to know what it actually was. Good job again with those videos. That really helped. We should have asked for those from the start.

Hey guys, just an update. Even though I'm still making that noise from the video I think my problem was due to a seized brake caliper. After fixing the caliper I let the car sit and just got around to doing more than just moving in and out the driveway.

Thanks for the update. Just to be clear, the noise is still there but you had a seized caliper pin or that fixed the noise as well?
