    I have this weird sound coming from the rear of my truck. Its like the sound of a nail in a tire but there's no nail in my tire. Then I thought it may be my u joint but its not that either. I'm stumped.

    I along with plenty of other people have had this same noise. As far as I know no one has figured it out and I've had my truck in 3 different shops which all told me the same thing that it could be chipped teath in the rear end but you can't tell until you rip the whole rearend apart. If someone else knows more about this that would be great. And also not to thread jack but does anyone know what model reared these trucks have in them cause it might make it a little easier for me to such for some answers?

    It could be chipped teeth but I doubt it. It sounds like its coming from the driver rear.


    I have drum brakes in the rear.

    Mine as with a couple people I have talked to with the same truck and same problem all agreed that it sounds like it's coming from the right rear. And op how long has your truck been doing it and has yours gotten any worse?
