Rearend is going out son-in-lae and his brother put all the tension on one side. Now it is popping when I back up and I can only do the speed limit which is 55. I did help on firguring out whatn it is.
That's what happened to my car and the problem was the rear differential. Please go your mechanic as soon as possible needs to be lubricated it and set some oil on it. Don't wait or it will get worse.
