Default Making a Noise

Hey for some reason when i take off from a complete stop i will hear some sound coming from my rear. I have currently put Pinion shims and bought a Carrier Bearing for my drive shaft. When i first installed the parts it had made the noise go away and everything was fine. But now i notice when i am at a light and take off i will hear a werid noise. This is a few days later after i installed the parts. I am wondering why is that?

Sorry.
Well it was my Carrier Bearing Shim kit. The 2 metal plates the bracket sits on. The bolt that came with the plates have a smaller head so if you dont put a washer on the end it will go threw the bracket hole because its bigger.

So you MUST put a washer on the end the nut so it wont go threw the bracket hole. Then just tighten it down real good with the lock washer it comes with..


Before i didnt have no washer on the end and the bracket was making it way off the bolt! So make sure you use some washers

Did it used to shake when starting from a stop? I think that may be my problem.

I bought just a couple bolts from Home Depot and think I may have bought the wrong ones.

No i never had any problems with it before i lowered it.
I notice that was my problem because i got under my truck and i could push the drive shaft up and i could see it wasnt bolted down good.

Mines came with hardware
