It’s the CV joint.Read clear through this thread this morning. One thing that is not clear at all, is what exactly is 'clicking'? . CV joint? Axle spline?... Locked Diff?
Seems to me that if angle is causing some of this, you apply some weight to the rear.. make it squat a bit... even the CV angles out... and if it was the angle, that click should go away... but the fact that this is happening more in turns on hard pavement... just screams diff at me. Anybody have a parts breakdown of the rear diff on these? I'm going to go through my service manual and check as well...
Just seems that if there was a hard click... you would be able to see some metal to metal contact somewhere... ?
Gonna be late for work now.. had to pull the service manual out.. .okay.. not the diff... unless there is some interaction with ring gear clearances and axle length...
The quickest way to get a CV joint to click when uncertain is to put the machine in a tight turn.
