At 1100 Miles Dealer Is Replacing The Driveshaft. Anyone Else Had This Experience?
My question here is: if Chevrolet has already identified that the "tink" issues are supposedly related to the older drive shaft design, then why wouldn't the new 05s be using the newer re-designed drive shafts??? :confusedPOSI-LOCK said:At 1100 Miles Dealer Is Replacing The Driveshaft.

:agreejoedecat said:We might not be looking at the right problem , i have noticed this with my 04 which has 2200 miles,and it has made a slight tink or clink a few times , when i get home from christmas i will get under the vehicle with it in neutral with the e brake on and twist the driveshaft back and forward to see howmuch backlash there is in the rear end gears . in my opinion for what its worth, others may differ , is that what we are hearing is differential back lash noise being amplified by the hollow aluminum drive shaft
I might be wrong ,and i will let you all know right or wrong
"Just GM support failure to resolve it along with a half adozen other issues" :rantjoedecat said:Another possible problem could be that the eye holes that the u joints slide or are pressed into are not thick enough and are stetching slightly enough to allow u joint caps to shift and cause the noise . If this problem was a structural defect in the shaft some one would have reported that their drive shaft had a catastophic failure , ie shearing of at welds or some where ib the centre shaft. A drive shaft is not rocket science and is probably the most simple piece off equiptment on a car
Has any one heard of some one having a drive shaft falure.?
