dana 80 vs 10.5 rear clunk wise?
I have 2 ford dually's. One of which i replaced the rears in allready.(it leaked all fluid out and cooked itself) I bought it that way.
That was dana 80 number 1, I have dana 80's in both trucks now.
My question is, do these rears clunk more then the 10.5 will?
Both work fine, no highway noise, but both clunk when going into drive, or reverse, back to drive etc.
Does the fact that they use spacers instead of crush sleeves contribute to a bit of shaft play? The rear i put inmy wifes had 53k on it. Mine has 118k.
I just find it weird they both have the same clunk. I replaced all u joints and carrier bearings in both. Also retightened everything. I want to stop it.
I know to determine its exact reason for the noise, I would have to take them apart and measure everything. I had an excursion with 120k on it never a rear end noise.
Can anyone please shed somelight on this for me?
