Customer Question

2003 escalade, when the suv is cold amd i start moving, there is a groining sound that seems to be coming from the rear, maybe in the differential area. After about 1 min of driving the sound stops. Only does this from a cold start.

Customer: Yes to both. I havent noticed any other problems
