Rear axle makes scraping noise when turning slow
Now that I've put some tailpipes on my Flowmaster 40 dumps, I notice that I can hear the 8.8 in my Fox making a slight scraping sound when I make a slow sharp turn at a stop light or into a parking lot. There is no clanging, chattering, or mechanical noise, just this scraping/rubbing noise along with the sensation of rotating friction. The 7.5 was replaced with an 8.8 by the previous owner and upgraded to 3.73 gears, but I don't know if the diff was also upgraded to something after market or not. On jack stands the axles turn freely and both wheels turn in the same direction. One way is to open up the rear end and inspect it, but, that withstanding, anyone wanna venture a guess as to what might be causing this friction noise that only happens during sharp slow speed turns?
