96 thunderbird rear end noise when i take off

I have a 96 4.6 V8 Thunderbird, when I take off and when weight shifts in the car, i hear a grinding noise from the rear end. The more people or weight in the car, the louder the sound. The sound is a grinding noise, metal on metal. does anyone know what this maybe ???

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

check your tranny and engine mounts.
they may be bad or going bad and will create that vibration. specially the tranny ones.

1996 Ford Thunderbird LX V8 Automatic Transmission shudder


Check rear emergency brakes if you have 4 wheel discs. When soot and brake lining fall to bottom of assembly they jam and shudder until wheels start rolling fast enough to scatter debris.

Also if posi equipped there is a needed rear-end additive to help clutch plates work. Perhaps clean rear-end lube and additive is needed.

How do I replace the motor mounts on my 96 thunderbird 3.8L?


Put the car on ramps and set e brake.

Use engine hoist to lift engine weight off of car.

Remove mount to engine bolts, remove mount nut.

Lift engine just enough to remove mounts and install new.

Watch exhaust, fuel lines and transmission mount while lifting. They may have to be loosened or moved.
