Bad axles metalic tinging noise
so I had this weird noise going on when I mess up releasing the clutch in first. It would make this ting noise. Been doing that for a year now but thats rare I mess up the release that bad.
This week I put new tires on run flats heavy. Now it's making the same noise but when I accelerate. I did some hard circle turn in a parking lot at full lock it doesn't make the noise. Usually when Im accelerating in low gear It also did it when I let off the gas fast but I couldn't recreate that.
One of my axles is for sure shot I jacked the car up and spun the wheel and stopped it and you can hear the same ting noise. It's weird the other side which has a new axle also makes the same noise.
Im thinking its the bad axle and the run flats just made it worse with the added weight.
Im just trying to rule out something else big before I put money into this car. If anyone has any other idea of what it could be let me know please.
I know it needs a clutch soon Im on the original at 155k. If it was a clutch would it make the noise under load?
