s10 help

Post by tennant34 » Tue Mar 15, 2011 9:45 pm

i bought a lil 2000 2wd s10 last week and its got a noise in the back end thats wierd, it clunks but only when your in the gas, sounds like its about to throw the drive shaft.. pulled it checked the u joint and cv joints, they feel just fine, greased them off, pulled the rearend cover, all the gears look good, put it all back together and the same clunking, its coming from the back so its not the tranny, any suggestions?

continuous thump, change with speed ? or just a single thump when accelerating or ?

Possible bad tire or bearing, drum brake shoe or hardware, or is it disc brakes ?
