1986 Rear Axle

Axle Damage Warning Signs

Rear axle problems aren’t uncommon on Fox-Body-era Mustangs — a fact those of us who like to drive our cars fast know all too well. While drivetrain repairs often can’t always be avoided, you can save yourself time and headaches by properly diagnosing the issue when it occurs. Some signs your rear axle might need replacing include:

• Strong vibrations, particularly at high speeds
• Grinding or humming gears, or a repeated clanking sound, particularly when accelerating
• Noisy, rattling gears while idling

Rear end problems can range from worn-out bearings and seals to physical damage to the axle itself. Many of these repairs can be performed in a moderately well-equipped home garage — others may require a trip to your local repair shop.
