    Hi Folks,

    Just bought my regular cab sr5 with the 2.7 ltr and manual trans 3 weeks ago with 35000 miles. I have taking a couple of long weekend trips with it already and it is quite nice. But when I am on 4 lane doing an indicated 80-85 mph and I take my foot off the gas I get a metallic grinding noise from the rear of the vehicle. I don't get it all the time and it seemed to settle down after fueling up? Any ideas on what to look for? I will be talking to the dealership but I would like to know what I should be looking for first.

    Also when shifting I have noticed that the rpms when shifting do no drop when im shifting from 4th gear to 5th. I push the clutch in and wait to see and finally it will drop if I pause for 3 or 4 seconds but to me that seems very strange.

    Thanks folks for any help you might have!

    the throttle sorta lingers, its electronic now, takes a little getting used to. The grind..., tough one, could it be the ring gears? change the gear oil?

    It goes away if you get back into the throttle and does not go away when you hit the brakes. I will let the dealership worry about it.

    The grinding noise sounds like your pinion angle is incorrect, I would check to make sure the u-bolts are tightened or just a good physical inspection of the driveshaft to see if the 3rd member are inline with each other.

    As for your RPM's not dropping, check the throttle plate and the return spring (sometimes crap likes to get in there).

    Are you sure it isn't just the brakes?
