Sorry for delay
Does it bang every couple seconds while accelerating?
If not let me know what it is doing please
Any other issues?
let me know
Thanks for info if you want phone call let me know
Usually banging is from a broken gear but is more noticeable in one gear than the others
banging all the time is usually from a broken gear in rear end
What I would do is drain a small amount of fluid out of each rear end and trans,, the one that is causing noise will have a bunch of metal,,most likely chunks, you may need to put a finger in and feel around.
Use a clean pan if you want to reuse fluid. Normally you won't need to drain much to find out which one it is so little that you don't need to refill.
As far as rebuild most times you just need to replace what went wrong
how many miles on this?
has anything happened such as wheel spin on ice then dry road or backing into a dock hard?
It's hard to say without hearing it but sounds more like a rear end since the rear end would take the shock first from a drive line suddenly stopping,, anything else farther up the drive line would not be as hard of a hit
either way best to check fluid before pulling anything apart!
Just need a 1/2 square drive socket and ratchet to remove plugs in diff and trans
