Re: what is this weird noise
When I first bought my 68 it had a similar groan from the rear end. It was more pronounced when I made sharp low speed turns to the right. Turned out to be a bad carrier bearing in the rear end housing. Fixed that and in addition the previous owner (or his mechanic) had failed to add the proper posi additive to the gear lube. Luckily the carrier, ring, and pinion were not damaged in any way. I had the gear oil analyzed by Blackstone Labs to see what's it's condition was.
