'08 TRD Sport Rear End question

Does anyone have problems with hearing a popping sound from under there 08' TRD Sport? Maybe from the drive shaft and is usually only when you backup or take off at low speeds.

You should have changed the oil 32,000 miles ago (every 30,000 miles).

Change the oil and see if it still makes the noise.

Make sure you use LSD oil.

I will let someone else help you out there. I'm not familiar with the Toyota LSD rear.

Personally, I would get it from Toyota.
