Im getting a really annoying squeaking/rubbing sound that seems to be coming from the rear of the car. I dont hear it when I back up, but as soon as I start to take off forward I hear it. It happens anywhere, anytime I take off from a dead stop and even more so if i'm taking a left hand turn like i'm loading something on that side causing it to rub. Any ideas? I sorted through the search function and didnt find anything really matching my problem. Thanks ahead of time for any help.

Im almost positive its not anything to do with the exhaust, I have looked it over several times to see. Im kinda wondering if its something in the brakes or possibly a bent axle causing the rotor to rub with each rotation.

Sorry I can't help with your problem
But last time I had an annoying noise I cured it by leaving her at home !

( sounded like, slow down, slow down !)

Maybe a dry bearing. What is the status of your rear end lube? Check the U-joints? Look at all your moving parts, could be any of them...

I'll have to check the bearings and u-joints just to be sure, but what has me lost is that I dont hear the noise when I back up. I have checked the brakes, calipers and pads are fine, I may have a warped rotor though I'll try pulling them and seeing also. Lastly I still have the stock LCAs.

Jack up the rear, and move the wheel side to side, and top to bottom. Looseness means you have a bad wheel bearing. Don't mistaken this for axle play though. Sounds like your right rear wheel bearing to me.

Just a quick question in case it would be bearings. Is the 8.8 rearends out of a fox body the same as the Bullitts. I know the axles are longer, but whats about everything else such as dimensions and diff. splines. I ask cause I have a build rear already done for my fox project w/ 3.73, diff support, and its nice, clean, painted and waiting. So if my bearings are bad I would just swap some things to that rear and put it under the car.

Could be exhaust rubbing somewhere, or maybe your spring isolator wore through? +1 with checking your u-joints.

Heres a thought,in the past I have had 2 Lincoln MKVIIs.In both of them I had a growling noise on initial take off.Never figured it out on the first one,then when the second one started making the noise I about had a stroke.I took it to a local mechanic for a brake job(this guy is good)and he discovered that the emergency brake cables were hanging up causing the E-brake to drag a bit.This can be caused by not using the E-brake very often and the cables and mechanism become corroded.He replaced the calipers and cables and I never had the noise again.The dealers couldn't even figure this one out but this guy did.Good luck.I HATE MYSTERY NOISES!

gucciardo may have solved my problem. When I first bought it last Sept. i didnt hear the noise, but after a while i began parking and always setting the ebrake. Thats around the time I started to notice the noise. Maybe the previous owner didnt use it that much, but that what the noise reminds me of is squeaky brakes. But I also think that there is more to it because it also does it when making hard left turn, as well as when I start taking off from a stop. Either way next weekend will be the first free chance I get to look at it I will be putting it up on a lift and eye everything.
