loud popping/knock noise that comes from the rear of my truck. And it has been getting worse lately. Any answers?
So On my 1997 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck, whenever you give it gas there is this loud popping/knock noise that comes from the rear. And it has been getting worse lately. Any answers? It is 2wd.
Maybe the differential bearings are shot.
I should mention, it only happens when I press on the gas from a complete stop. And sometimes when I hit bumps. But it does not do it when the truck is moving. And the rear shocks are pretty new.
Check the universals and carrier bearing
UPDATE: I found what was making the noise. Turns out one of the strap bolts for the gas tank was loose, and the the gas take was shifting around.
