Not likely on the loose nut, but it will have shocked anything that was stopping the click.

It's all interference and the grease is just there to keep it quiet, mine has quietened down completely since it got cold.

Should i go back to the shop that did the brake install to ask them to look at it (they are a performance shop) or I should just print out the TSB and go to a regular workshop (out of warranty )

Also my car is from FL . . rececntly moved to TX and is getting a taste of its first severe winter . . .you think that might have aggravated the issue ?

If you don't want to do it yourself, sure, take it in somewhere with the TSB.

It's not any fault of the perf shop, it's just something that can happen as parts move.

Right grease? Honestly, it doesn't matter.

Some thick marine grease should suffice.

yes it actually does matter quite a bit once you get into it..has to be insolulable and withstand alot of heat, and be ok against diff. elements and such and be successful to withstand metal to metal contact..not all greases are the same..a plane jane wheel bearing grease will wear off in no time..i plan to do this once and not have the issue come back

This works great.... You can get it at Napa and many other autoparts.

Make sure you also coat the Splines as well.

If you must have M77, but it's 3x the money by the time you add in shipping.

WD will not do *anything*, so no it won't save you removing the bolts

Now the weather has heated up, mine are clicking and cracking both sides, nearly everytime i start off, it's really embarrassing Gotta make time and get this done

Gonna do this tomorrow as I had to take the axles off to get to the rear wheel bearings when I replaced them. Now that I have the m77 grease, I wanna grease my axles properly.

I realize this is an old thread but I had a few questions? I have a ticking noise coming from the rear when I let off of the accelerator at higher speeds. I just noticed the noise after I had a new clutch installed. Could the axle be the issue or could it be something to do with the clutch?

I dought it's your clutch.

Another problem area are the u-joints in the drive shaft.

Look under the car for any signs of greese splatter on the bottom side of the tunnel in the area around the u-joint.

If it was something that showed up after the work was done, it may be something that wasn't installed tight enough, have whoever did the clutch check it out.
