Rear end pulling/grabbing
Hey guys did a little searching and couldn't find anything like my issue.
So basically about to put my car on the road after resto modding it for the past year. Finally drove it out of the garage last week. Everything seemed normal backing out of the garage, but when you put it in first and drive forward. A weird pulling/grabbing is felt coming from the rear end. Let me say that this feeling was felt before we tore the car down because we shattered some teeth in the ring gear. Swapped that out for a new ring and pinion. Changed the Torque arm mount and trans mount cause those were shot as well. Today I changed rear shocks because mine were bent and drove the car, but the noise was still present.
I seen some of my bushings are trashed for the panhard bar. Also, I have a leaky pinion seal that I am changing tomorrow. So I am hoping it's either not enough gear oil or old bushings that is causing this noise. We haven't even opened it up yet on the road because we didn't want to break the ring gear again. It's kind of a violent pulling though almost a lumpy feel to it. Weird because it doesn't happen in reverse only going forward. Any input would be appreciated.
