Could this be the thrust washers? Vin ending in 6199.
Not sure on the V6. Usually it's a problem with applying load and not by hitting bumps and dips.

Actually it does effect the V6 as well.

So yours is missing the washers for sure. Yours was built before mine.

Click could be the washers.

But it doesn't click due to bumps and dips. Just when taking off from a stop or putting load on the drive line.

Anyone have the service bulletin so I could read it? Mine was built in July 2009.

Your car was built before July. My car arrived at my dealer on May28th 2009 and my vin is #9067. I picked my car up on June 1st. Your car was built before mine. I"m guessing early may.

Doesn't matter though because it effected almost the first 100k were without the thrust washers according the the TSB.

Here is the best I can find.

Where did you get that info.

Not trying to argue.

But I know mine is #9067 and I picked it up on June 1st.

I think someone gave you wrong info. Had to. Unless yours was stuck in Area 51 QC hold and was considered 'Built' upon release.

PQ, in your video you say to torque the drive shaft nut to 159 lb-ft but the text above that you posted says 199 lb-ft. I'm wondering if I should go back and re-torque the nut.

Wow. Is that were the noise is coming from? I never noticed the noise til after I did the diff swap. We were thinking it was coming from the from the axels. DSS shipped me another set of axels. Which are arriving today. Calling the dealer about those washers right now.

That TSB is actually for more that just the Camaro. Same TSB is for the Cadillac as well. I went with the Camaro install manual for the specs. Plus I verified it with shop that did a few axle installs.

It's truly amazing what a couple of washers can do!

Dtrimpi87, I remember while I was making the video I first mentioned that it was 199 and then I changed it when I talked to a shop that did axles.

I can't find the info. All I'm finding now is 199 so I'd just do it to 199.

I overlooked it to verify. Good catch. I'll update the op till I can find the real number.

I think I may go back in and tighten to 199.

I dont' remember who I talked to with the 159 but everything I'm finding now says 199. I should have just stayed with that.

PQ...

That was a great watch FYI. You could do your own Junkman type vids! HA!..

But, for the weekend mechanics out here it was excellent. And, if even if they are not doing it themselves, for whatever reason, it gives them confidence/knowledge to proceed and insure whatever mechanic they choose does a good job! So thanks all around!

Glad you didn't bust your knuckles on that. I was curious if you greased up your camera by mistake though! LOL....

It was actually my phone. I don't have a video camera.

Thanks for the props though.

Sorry for the miss-info. :(

Fortunately it's just a 15 minute job. But I"m not sure why the hell I didn't go with the safe bet.
