( Corvette differential noise )

( Corvette differential noise ) I have a 1977 corvette 350 auto, the differential started making sort of a clunking noise making a turn at really slow speed and is OK once you get going. Now its starting to do it when you start out from a dead stop.(replaced u-joints still does it). You can feel the rear of the car moving from side to side,and when i watch it from outside it looks maybe like the axles are binding then popping. when your driving everything's fine, maybe a gear coming lose? thanks ( bummed person)

Check the fluid!

You might find the differential is low or needs the fluid replaced! Be certain to add the posi additive. You can get it at almost any auto parts store, even Honda car dealerships!

Sounds like the rear trailing arms need replaced....thats about a 2400.00 job....2 grand for parts and 400.00 for labor.
