    Re: are all 205\'s really noisy?

    wuuuaaaa, then why is mine so noisy? it was professionally rebuilt, and the shop told me they are normally noisy, and i talked to another guy and he said his first one waas really noisy, but never had a problem with it, but his second one is not as noisy, the noisy is mainly the sound of the gears, my 208 made noise, but just not as much, its also partly that the boot i ahve doesnt dampen the noise from underneeth very well.

    Re: are all 205\'s really noisy?

    when my 205 is in 4wd low, but i am getting a little bit of speed going, it makes some gear noise. Its not like grinding or anything, just a "whiring" of the gears turning and stuff I think. It makes some noise, but as soon as I put a boot on my t-case shifter to cover up the whole in the floor it will prolly be a-ok.

    its hard to describe noises... but whats yours sound like? also, whats your interior like? have carpet of floor mats or anything? i think one reason I can hear mine is that my entire interior is stripped and herculined... not much sound deadening at all, so I pretty much hear everything. lol! its all good... i have a loud exhuast, loud tires, and I run with the top off my rig most of the time. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    its pretty much just the noise of the gears, there is carpet, but no padding where the boot is, right now the boot is just bolted down, im gonna put some insulation on it to see if the noise goes away. the noise isnt that bad, my stereo can drown it out rpetty easily.

    I have no carpeting and no shifter boot so its very loud in mine. It does make a whirling or whining noise almost but no clunds or clanks...or thunder thunder rattle rattle boom boom booms.

    Re: are all 205\'s really noisy?

    if the shop rebuilt it completely with new gears and all maybe the gears need to brake in a litlle till they run clean.my 205 is 33 years old and doesnt make any sound.i run with no carpet and primer on the floor for now till i get around to putting something on there to prevent rust.

    Mine is also very quiet. With about 80,000 on it, no noise, vibration, etc. Just the shift rail seal's leak a little.
