95 T-Bird Limited Slip Grinding
The rear end first started slipping one day I tried to go up a real steep driveway with a gutter in front of it. It got hung up on the gutter and just wouldn't go, you could tell it was the rear end slipping. Now it does a couple of things, right after it shifts into higher gear, the rear end will slip and also grind. If I immediatly let off the gas and resume accelerating it will stop. Also, there is a slight stutter in the drive train. It would seem like it's coming from the tranny, but I'm hoping it may be caused by whatever is plaguing the rear end. But I haven't noticed any stuttering as the problems with the rearend have worsened; it used to only slip after 3rd, now it does it after 2nd on up. Also, this may be normal, but the damn thing fishtailed on me at 65mph on a wet road. I wasn't getting on it, just accelerating mildly to pass.
I'm hoping someone has seen this before and can tell what I need to have fixed. I was planning on having some adjustments done to the gears anyway, to give it a little more torque. And If I can get it done for a good price, I was thinking about finding a used rear end with disk brakes and refurbishing it. I currently have drums on the rear. Let me know if that makes good sense. By the way, I replaced all the brake components about a year ago, so I don't think that's the issue.Thanks for any help.
