#5158 of 6471 clunk in rear of 1999 chevy tahoe
Apr 10, 2005 (7:20 am)
hi i have a 1999 chevy Tahoe when i come to a stop, then take off the rear end clunks , when i checked it i found no play in the diff and i checked for a broken leaf and loose body mount boly but found nothing. I suspect that the spider gears are worn out but before i overhaul the diff , can someone give me some feedback about this if they had the same problem ?

Does it ride differently with the 20s than it did with the 17s?

I had a 96 Tahoe with a similar problem. It was caused by the front drive draft universal yoke binding on a stop and "clunking" when you were to accelerate. It was solved by applying a "special GM" grease on the yoke. The dealer will perform this for about 1 hour labor charge. I bought the grease and did myself in about 30 minutes.
PS: my 89 CK1500 also has the same problem and this fix works on it too.

It does not ride as soft but steering response is improved.

I have a 99 two door and was pullng a trailer at the time. My four way flasher and brake lights still work but the directionals blow fuse #16 as soon as I try to use them. Either side, same thing. I pulled the flasher and replaced it but nothing changed. Is there only one flasher? Is there some other relay I should be looking at? Thanks in advance for any help that you give. jim.

If it is still blowing the fuse with the trailer disconnected, you may have a damaged wire or connection back at the trailer connector. Is the connector a GM original, or an aftermarket installation? Four wire, or seven?

I just put a deposit on a 1995 4wd Tahoe LS with 16,500 original miles. The truck was owned by an older guy who used it to drive around town. A few years back he passed away and his wife kept in the garage until last month when she traded it it.
Anything special I should know about this model year or areas of concern that I should look closely at?

The connector is a "flat four" that was recently installed. I went back there and checked it all and everything looks fine. I'm going to cut it off just to make sure that it is not part of the problem.

I wouldn't just cut it off. Check where the connections were made to the existing harness and see if thats where the short is. It always bugs me to see shops cut into a GM/Ford/Dodge harness to make the connections. There is an aftermarket company that makes a "T" connector that plugs into the harness and give a water-tight connection to all the tail light functions without cutting anything.

Agree! Look for a "T" connection and unplug it. If it was wired directly without the "T", most likely there is a short somewhere at those connections.
