    Definitely "something somewhere." Would check that first.

    when you did the lift, did you put a cv shaft into the front, it maybe the cv joint, centering ball going out. other thing is the front axle gears going out due to a bad bearing in the carrier.....

    can you give any other info, like does it seem to come from the drivers or passengers side more...

    No cv driveshaft. But I think it is coming out of the front dif. I was checking it this weekend and after putting it into 4H and trying to rotate the driveshaft I got just a tit hair of give and I think that might be the problem. Also noticed a small leak coming out of the pumpkin in the rear where the driveshaft meets the dif. Could be the start of blown seal. If it is then I guess I am upgrading to a D44 sooner than I planned. I was just trying to have the D30 last as long as possible so I could save up some money for a summer build.

    I had a pinion bearing do something similar, during the replacement I just went ahead and had all the bearings, seals replaced in both axles.

    Just replace pinion seal and save for your D-44. Very cheap and easy fix

    That does sound like a way better idea at the moment. Haha
