I have a 2000 Suburban with 97k miles that has the RRRRRRR or howling rear-end noise. It has been doing it for years. When I had the trans rebuilt a few years ago, I talked to the trans shop about the rear end and he told me it's a very common problem that is hard to fix w/o replacing/rebuilding the rear end. He said their is little chance of a failure so I'll keep driving it with the radio a little louder. If I drive over 60 it's not very noticeable.

I have a 1997 Chevy Suburban LS 2WD I bought used in 2002 with 50K miles on it. Between 40 and 50 mph, it has a whirring noise that I thought was going to be trouble. My mechanic said the 10-bolt chunks made these noises and was nothing to worry about. After towing boats (3000 lbs) and adding another 75K miles, I have had zero problems. But I did change over to a synthetic rear end fluid right after I bought it.

I have a 1997 Chevy K-1500 that has a clunking nosie when it shifts gears. I have replaced the u-joints but the nosie is still there. I have not changed the fluid yet but plan to. I think I may have to shime the ring or pinion gear but don't know how. Can anyone offer any advise.

You need to get the axle housing checked for straightness, these housings have a tendency to bend where the axle tube meets the housing. Its a common problem on these rearends. If it is bent it puts a strain on the carrier bearing and the axle bearing. This can be repaired at a rearend shop by heating up the housing and truing up the tube to the housing.
#14 of 14 Popping Noise coming from right rr of '07 Tahoe 4wd
Nov 22, 2011 (4:06 pm)
I'm having some issues with the rear end of my Tahoe. The first is a popping noise, almost like driving over bubble wrap, when I come out of reverse. The second is a thud or thunk underneath when accelerating from a stop, a slow crawl or reverse. My truck only has 58K miles on it. The thunking noise might be due to a slip yoke binding problem as I have seen on some forums but not sure about the popping noise. Any suggestions?
