Intermittent Chatter noise from Driveline

Post  airford1 on August 31st 2018, 3:46 pm

Chatter noise only when starting out in reverse from the reared. Had the the 3rd member out and everything checks out. I have drum brakes and had hoped it was that. Still had the chatter with the brake applied or not, but only in reverse.U Joints seem good I have not pressed them out. So could it be bearings in the rear?

Axle bearings in good shape? Rear suspension mounting points and hardware in good shape too?

Had it apart 2 weeks ago and I was satisfied that all was good. Still has a chatter that sounds like a brake Drum, but it still rattles with brake on or off. I did notice the left axle seal started to leak and I did put new seals in. Maybe the Housing is bent or an axel. I will pull the reared out and have a new housing made and go thru the 3rd member. It's an old square tube chassis car that was raced in a 8.90 door slammer and the guy didn't take care of things.

Im guessing you checked all the bolts real good? motor mounts, tranny mounts, leafspring bushings? will it do it on jack stands?

What's the rear suspension setup?

My Futura had a broken lower control arm bolt that took me weeks of head scratching to find. And the only way I found it was by attempting to tighten every bolt back there... that one just turned and turned... It was broken inside the steel bushing sleeve...
