Are your rubber body mounts good?
..and since editing is effed up on this website, I need to add "Do you have discs on the back or standard?"
Hard to tell from the vids, some still pics of your setup would help too. Have you checked the spring perches on the axle to make sure the welds are still good? Also might be worth checking to see if the centering pin in the perch is there and still round, also if it is allowing fore/aft movement. I agree with others about checking the pinion angle, also check to make sure driveshaft length is correct.
Shackle mounts are solid, checked for loose bolts and added video of shackle.
Had stock drums but upgraded to rear disc when I installed the new Strange axles and bearings.
Unfortunately noise was there before and after the change.
I watched the video again and I thought you were on to something...but...what your seeing in the video is actually where I disconnected the upper sway bar arm from the sway bar to isolate the bar from the body. it just happens the bottom of the mount is perfectly lined up in the video to the shock plate. What are the chances of that!
But a great observation on your part!
All solid interlocking body mounts. I rechecked the torque to 75lbs.
Perch welds checked and all welds are good.
Perch centering pins are intact and I have Custom Works Comp Axle Pad/Locators installed to prevent for/aft movement.
General consensus is that I need to check pinion angle. I have a new drive shaft on order and will check and correct pinion angle at that time. Since the car had been lowered 1.5"-2" I'm certain the pinion angle is out of spec.
I am not convinced the rattle/clank is pinion related as I can find no physical evidence or witness marks of any contact anywhere but then again I ain't the sharpest pencil in the drawer, that's why I'm here...
Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions so far.
Any other ideas?
Found a video I made with Brian on my noise...
