If you could just bring your truck over to my place I could figure it out
Trust me, I have started to take vacation from work and just drive the damn thing to Bill's shop in Salt Lake 10 times over.

With some luck, a detailed video (with several video cameras), and good audio recording on multiple points, it will be "just like the real thing."

Baby steps. It can't break forever.

I'll get it posted to YouTube in about 6 hours (when I get back home).

Have you actually checked that your axle is straight?

Not personally. No clue how. The LR Tech that installed the last diff told me he gave them a once over and that they slid right in with no binding.

That said... I'll know, definitively, that they're straight when I put the new one's in a few days from now.

But if it was the axles, why didn't the 1st or 2nd diff makes all this noise? Perhaps they've bent because of all the strain? Any thoughts welcome.

Of course they will slide in fine. Look at the drive member flange before bolting and see if it is parallel. Put a digital level on the axle flanges.

I'll do the check and get back to you. Any other input on the noises heard in the video?

No idea. Have seen a few True Tracs, never noticed any noise. Obviously turning on pavement with the center diff locked is nasty at the best of times.

Yea I agree with driving on pavement with CDL locked thats asking for something to blow up. Maybe if you slam on the gas you will be able to figure out what the real problem is

Since it happens mostly when one wheel is turning more than the other I would believe it is the carrier (truetrac). I would pull the diff and take it to a different diff shop and get an opinion. You could also see if Eaton has any sort of "certified" diff mechanics in your area that can take the truetrac apart and inspect it.

Have you tested the truetrac on something slick to see if it still works like it should?
