I have an 04 with the orig diff on it so I wanted to ask...
I noticed a noise this morning when I was backing into the driveway, so I had my wife come down and ran some "tests".
The rear diff (it's a 2wd) makes a noise when going from Park to Drive and back to Park as well as when going from Park to Reverse and back to Park. It's not like a scary noise... it could very well be a normal gear change sound. Nothing sounds like it's grinding or whatever... just an obvious gear-like sound of some sort.
Is this normal or should the diff be completely silent?
No noise it made when in actual motion in either direction. It's just when you make the change from one direction to the other (park, forward, backwards)... if that makes sense.
Just want to know if I should go get me a new diff while I'm still under warranty or not.
Thanks for the info gents!
