Customer Question
I have a 2004 avalanche...
I have a 2004 avalanche with a g80 rear end and have a ratcheting sound coming from the rear weels when I hit a bump. the sound slows as the truck slows and stops just before the truck stops. it won't return until I hit another bump. I was told it was the left clutch pack in the rear end witch I replaced and the sound remains . do you have any thoughts on this?
