Hello! I've got a 66 Fastback, mild 302, 4-spd, and a 8", 3.00, Traction-Loc rearend that was rebuilt about 5000 miles ago...by me. Well its been running great, but recently I've been noticing a light kind of grinding noise when I coast in gear. I rebuilt it to the factory specs, double checked every measurement, and made sure the tooth mesh pattern was correct. Theres oil in it, and I used the limited slip additive. I'll be pulling the third member soon to check it out , any ideas? Thanks in advance. Joe ::

Johnpro hit it on head. just got my '68 on road adn heard growling noise. did as he suggested and there ws no doubt about it. bearings were good 2 yrs ago when i ripped underside down for complete suspension, steering, and handling kit install and brake/gas lines. one suggestion was car sit on wheel bearings and slightly flattened them. sounds little far fetched but they were sure bad.
