BanditSRT8 Posted June 10, 2008 Report Share Posted June 10, 2008 Ok, so since day one I have had this odd squeak that no one could figure out what it was. At first we believed it was the suspension and it would break in and disappear. Nope. As I listened more closely it was coming from the rear of the car, and it was a rotating sound. It would only really become evident when IN GEAR and would sometimes go away by depressing the clutch (re-appearing when re-engaging the clutch), and it would SPEED UP as the car sped up. So to me, it HAD to be the rear end. Well, twice it has gone in, and twice it was misdiagnosed. The last time they said it was my right rear brake that had to be adjusted and something lubricated. I told them that can't be it because if you depress the clutch the squeak goes away... that can't be a brake issue. So of course, the sound came right back, BUT a new sound was added to the mix! A low moaning or what I called a "whirring" sound coming dead on from the rear. It would ONLY come when making a very slow, sharp turn (like in a parking lot). I was able to recreate both sounds for them in their parking lot and their SVT expert took my car. I just got the call... he said the axle was out of spec and Ford told them to replace the entire rear end as this also affected the differential. So, my car could be an isolated case, but if not... if you're experiencing this, then you will likely need to replace your entire rear end. At least now you'll know what to tell them to look for.
