Yup, 2wd. I'm going to pull the axle tomorrow since its pretty easy and put it in drive and just let it idle. If it really is what you think (and me too, even though I'm not excited about it) it should make the noise... Probably be faint, but at least it will knock out the rear end completely. But like I said, since it slows down when the tranny shifts, I know its on the tranny/engine side and not the tranny/diff side. Since it doesn't do it when the engine is in neutral, it seems like the tranny is the place it is.
I really HATE taking my stuff to car shops...

I have a similiar problem...just started last night. 1999 5.3L Silverado w/120k. Ticking noise at idle when on a hill with back end down hill and when I hit the gas. Faster ticking with speed. Mine happens in reverse when I hit the gas hard. Sounds like metal/metal. I read about Chevy's piston slap and it souds like maybe thats what we have. Contact the BBB and look for a new motor...not sure yet myself??

For me it ended up being my U-Joint. It was 10 bucks at advance auto parts and took me all of 10 minutes to put in. I regreased my drive shaft also. If yours is doing it at idle though, this is not the fix for you.

Hello, is the drive shaft on a 2002 suburban aluminum?

I have just been informed by the dealer that the transmission on my 2005 Suburban needs to be replaced. There is not even 50,000 miles on this thing and I do not tow with it all. Is this common? Also, or there other options beside a $3,600 new transmission?
