    Has an auburn pro posi traction/limited slip.
    Clicking Just started after he had a new diff cover installed, about 5 days ago. Any idea what this clicking noise is? Sounds like a detriot.

    Branndon,

    in my old 12 bolt i had the auburn unit. basically it needed more of the chevy additive for the rear diff. and then it went away.

    could be the gears jerking which transfers to the wheels where we hear the noise coming from... starting in the center, and travling through the shaft to the end where the wheel mounts
