The noise only came when the tires were in the turn position. Strait was fine.
However, when the wheel was turned it made a noise like it was cavitating.
I have alum front C hubs and blocks and thought it was that. I looked at everything and made shure everything was shimmed properly to make up for slop, but it didn't help.
I tried the same setup with my one way diff and it was fine.
Something to do with the solid axel.
I think the noise is coming from where the cvd axel meets the cvd bone. Since both are forced to turn at the same time with the solid axel, it causes a slight vibration.
I wounder if the solid axel had the outdrives at different angles if it would eliminate the noise. Like one at 90degrees from the other.
Anybody else getting noise?
