Clanking/Clicking Diagnosis

Just picked up a '94 RRC and it has TT lockers front and rear. I am usually an ARB guy, so mechanical locker noise is new to me. When I turn hard left, there is a slight binding and clanking noise, almost like a bad CV. Do the TTs make noise whilst hard turning?

When I turn hard right, there is no bind and no noise.

Does it have Detriot Lockers or Truetracs (which are LSDs, not lockers)?

Just my 2 cents but TC beats a trutrac to death. Why the PO went that direction is a mystery to me.

I've had GBR-built TruTracks on my D90 for about six years now and they don't make any discernable noise. The only somewhat noticable thing about them is the front one has a (agreeable) self-centering quality after turning that others have also noted about the design.

Sorry, J. I don't believe the clicking/clanking would come from a TT unless there was something wrong with it.

Truetracks shouldnt make noise. My Detroit makes a light racheting type noise when turning hard but truetrac in the front is silent.

Is the noise front or rear?

These are GBR TruTracks. Okay, sounds like it's a CV. I'll pull it out (the CV that is) tomorrow and see.

Probably a CV, but the VC in the t-case is going bad.

Sounds like you have the same problems with GBR 3rd's that I'm having.

Truetracs front and rear with 4.11 gears... watch the video. Audio is included.

Check the swivel fluid, somehow I ran mine empty for an unknown amount of mile. It seem fine at this point.

Im not sure how I feel about that borg Warner, I know a few folks that have wheeled the pis out of them. The dirt time I took my truck out the CC was shot.

Congrats on the classic, bring it to uwharrie in the fall.

Replaced the left CV today with a spare, still makes the noise. I'll tackle the right side tomorrow. It makes the noise on full left lock going forward, and full right lock going in reverse.

....and although it prolly has nothing to do with your noise, make sure the BW has ATF in it and not gear oil. Seems like that happens a lot and they (BW) do not like it.

It's the right CV and stub axle. The CV is dry and the roller bearing in the stub axle is toast.

Isn't the RRC stub the same for D90/D1/RRC?

I have a couple of the roller bearings, but they're at the barn. Pretty easy to replace. Knock it out from the outside with a long screwdriver that you don't mind whacking with a hammer. The bronze bush should be OK.

Unless it's got a lot of play and is pitted or otherwise worn, the CV should be OK with new grease.
