I sometimes hear a faint scratching noise when I'm driving down the road at speed. I've looked under to see if there was a branch or maybe if someone zip tied me but don't see anything on the drive shafts. It's not loud. I don't think it increases or decreases with speed. I'm kinda dumbfounded on it.

For those of us from the 70's and older, the best way I can describe the sound is it's alot like the beginning to Jimmy Hendrick's Voodoo Chile, only without the guitar riff.

Any ideas?

I don't think so but I'll give it a look. The differential looked dry the last time I checked it. I've got a 3.08 open diff so I don't have to worry about the clutch packs
