They say it's normal but the noise is embarrassing when all your buds drive up in their Chevy's and there is no noise then mine sounds like the trans is going to fall out.

Try applying the emergency break before putting the trans in park and leave it on until after you take out of park. Seems to help.

It's normal and you will really hear it when parking on a small hill if you don't use your e-brake. I was really worried to until I took it to the dealership and was told it's normal. Now I always use my e-brake whenever I park on a small hill and it's not as bad.

You should consider using the E-brake every time you park. It is easier on the parking paw in the trans.

I believe it depends on the type of differential you have. Could be something else though.?

Could be the LS differential needs some friction modifier but I have not tried any because I'm not sure if it would be compatible with the fluid.
