Default Check it out!.. New acc. One New Problem

Allright... I have been stuck between work and family for too long.. I miss the Z haha!... Some pictures Have been attached to this post! I have mixed my own plastidip and plastidipped my new brushguard/rollbar and rear bumper/front bumper and my wheels!.. Loove the results, opinions would be great!.... Onto my question, I am stumped... When I have drove for about 10 miles or so and the driveline is all hot.. I begin to hear a whiirrring/groaning sound from somewhere in the driveline (only on take off into a turn, or parking lot maneuvers/slow turning reverse.. Cannot pinpoint it, U joints are all good.. fluid in the rear diff has 15,000 miles on it, all the fluid in the front diff/tranny/transfer case is all brand new Lucas 80/90.... The sound only remains for about 2 seconds then it subsides...Maybe my clutch packs are wearing out? I find that unlikely due to the meticulous care of this truck and due to the fact that it sees little abuse and has not towed a trailer since my purchase of it..any suggestions are helpful...Problem could be in the front end from all I can hear haha.... Also!My water pump blew out about 2 weeks ago... It blew dramatically haha! Spewing coolant from the upper seal like a sprinkler.. Needless to say, it was a replacement job...Buuut I took it a step further and replaced my timing chain also.. That was a job and a half,glad it is done though... The hardest part was removing the old water pump from the fan..Sweet jesus that sucked... Timing chain was a little wore with some play to it but nothing major... Made a video on the process if anyone is interested.. It can be done with normal tools.. Only special tool you may need is a 3 prong puller or "Chickenfoot" to yank that harmonic balancer.. anyways, would love some opinions of the groaning driveline/possible steering issue!

At Ramfam, yeah I added the modifier with the gear oil when I changed it out... the lucas gear oil I use states on the bottle that it does not need any special additives, but, I added it anyway.

Well that's good I know the daina rear ends will. Lock up and skip and bark without it and the front will groan when not locked in 4x4

Do you have a manual or auto trans? My 01 5 speed is good for being a whiner at low speed forward and back. And the 95 4x4 is good for rearend whine.

By the way your transfer case should have atf+4 in it.

It is an auto... The rear end has never been noisy although The sound vibrations reverberate through the steering column...Trouble- Yeah, the tranny and T-case have Castrol Max-Atf -4... Everything else in running on Lucas oil
