Took it for a 15 mile run. Loud whinning noise in rear end while driving. Parked on the driveway and as I pushed it by turning the wheel, it shuttered every few feet. I was sure I had teeth missing from the ring gear. Then I put the rear of the car on jack stands with the suspension drooped and turned the wheels (both in the same direction) with NO noise or shuttering of any kind! ??!!??
Could it be the pinion angle which is at 5 degrees, measured at the flat spot on the side of the housing? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
