Put a 3.45 lsd in last night.
When i slow down around anything under 50 kmh, i can hear the diff(i think) make a loud clicking noise in time with the rotation of the wheels. IF i dont use the brakes i cant hear the noise anymore.

I havent had a chance to look under the car yet, but what are some things possibly making this noise??!?
cheers guys.

Interesting... Mine did the same thing just before it got rebuilt.

Only did it when it was hot though.

hi there.i would jack both sides of your car up. chock the front wheels
start it up and put it in gear. and see if your wheels wobble.
as you may have a bent axle. i had the same noise.
it turned out to be a bent axle making the brake caliper move from
side to side. i hope this helps.... :)

I'll second that... My old EB2 did the exact same thing. Also turned out to be a bent axle after a dodgy mechanic replaced the wheel
bearing :s

it also turned out o be the brake caliper moving side to side.

It won't be this, but just in case check your driveshaft tunnel and see if the driveshaft has actually been rubbing on it to eliminate this as a cause.
