i just got back from the shop and found the problem. the diff bushing needs to be tighten with an air gun. everything is perfect now. No noise at all. but the subframe bushing looks pretty bad, should have to replace that soon if it makes noise again. btw. if your going to remove the differential, you might as well reinforce the subframe mounting points with tuner motorsports reinforcement kit. sooner or later, all pre2000 model will have ripped subframes. the kit is like a 150 bucks with some professional welder charging a few hundred dollars.
