Rear end popping/clicking when turning

Ok so I tore 3 cv boots on my gorilla axles last weekend. I took the cvs apart, cleaned all the grease out, installed new grease & boots. When I put it all back together I hear a clicking noise from the rear only when I'm turning. Makes no noise at all when going straight. Is something binding in the cv or there something starting to go in the rear diff.?

Re: Rear end popping/clicking when turning

Check the torque on your rear hub nuts, heck check the front too. Should be 80 ft.lbs. If that is OK try adjusting your rear brake calipers. There is an allen head bolt on the inside of each caliper. Tighten all the way then back off 1/4 to 1/2 turn. Hope one of these solves your problem.

Well I loosened everything and retorqued. Axle nuts, upper & lower a-arms, shocks, swaybar, & calipers. changed all the brakes(needed anyways) & adjusted them. same noise. Is this possibly just the break-in till the grease covers the whole cv joint? Or do I need to break cv down and see if something is out of place?

Re: Rear end popping/clicking when turning

I have the same problem with my 09, I tore it all apart twice and can't make anything click. It only clicks when I turn to the right. I pushed it down the hill and it seems to come from inner CV. I had the dealer replace the wheel bearings and that wasn't it. So its currently at my dealer. I called today and they haven't looked at it yet. May be next week before they figure it out.
I have driven 350 miles with it clicking, so who knows what it is? I've tried the caliper and the hub nuts so I understand your frustration.

Re: Rear end popping/clicking when turning

Have either of you checked to see if your hubs are cracked? That is very common. They will crack from center towards a lug from running too little torque on the hub nut. You could also have too little torque on your lug nuts. This also will cause clicking. The other question I have is are the Gorilla axles supposed to allow you more or less angle than stock before cv joints bind? You can jack the rear up and let wheels droop so they clear the ground and rotate them. If you have bind, you should be able to feel it. I have no experience with Gorilla axles, but since that is the mod you made, you might check with the vendor to see if they will work with a RokTek 3" lift. Just trying to play devil's advocate here.

Not the hub. they are fine(billet alumni. hubs). I always torque my lugs down. I have run those axles for 2 1/2 yrs and been fine. Gorilla allow for 40% more angle than stock cvs. Bearings are brand new also. It has to be either rear diff. or I rebuilt the cv wrong. can't run without rear axle in place so it's kinda hard to tell which one.

Re: Rear end popping/clicking when turning

Another suggestion. Try putting some grease on the splines of the axle and splines on the hub.

Re: Rear end popping/clicking when turning

Its the cv joint clicking. When is only happens when turning thats a classic sign. Probably drove a little to long with the torn boots and have a flat spot in some of the balls.

Re: Rear end popping/clicking when turning

Had the same problem on the passenger rear inner after the boot got cut but i ran it for a couple days and got a bunch of trash in it, heard the popping so i took it apart and cleaned it new grease new boot, drove it for about 5 minutes then, boom, it blew apart, that inner maybe had 15 hours on it, i think it was just faulty, bought a new one and she is runnin smooth again
