As far as how loud it is, It's probably because it's dry.

Why is it in Texas ? U trying to make the problem bigger ?

If the truck was here it'd only be a small shimmy and slight torque steer.

Why don't you just get a master rebuild kit from cruiser outfitters for $129? Then we can put all new bearings in it, set the preload with a new crush sleeve and then set the backlash. It's an easy afternoon job since the 3rd member is already out. As long as the R&P don't have any chipped teeth or excessive wear we can fix it up like new. Then you can stop worrying about it.

It's in Texas getting painted.

I probably will just rebuild it but I figured I would keep trying cruiserparts.net until I got a good one. We'll see how this one does once I get my truck back and I'll rebuild one If I have any more issues.

I thought you said they shipped the 3rd member to you here in Colorado even though the truck is in Texas?

They did, the diff is here and my truck is in Texas. Not sure what I said that contradicts that, but basically the latest third I got in on Friday is clicking some when I turn the flange so I was just curious if I should even try with putting it in when I do get the truck back. Are you thinking of the first video I had with it installed? That was the second diff I got. Anyway, all of this is on hold for a couple of months regardless, so I figure I'll put the diff in when I get the truck back and if I'm still having problems with the newer one, I'll just rebuild one of the other ones I got from cruiserparts.

I was suggesting you rebuild the 3rd member you currently have in Denver. That way you know it is good and ready to go when you get the truck back. From what I've seen of your videos I wouldn't put any of those diffs back in without going through them first.

I see. That's probably what I should do, but I was kind of debating on just putting this newest one in there and seeing how it does first. I guess I'm just not very confident that I can rebuild it correctly. Did you say previously that you have all the tools to do a rebuild? Would you be willing to school me on it some weekend? I'm certainly not in any hurry, but I just don't think I can do that myself without messing something up.

Yes, I've got everything needed to rebuild it and I'm glad to help.
