Did you change the diff fluid lately? Older posi units required an additive to keep 'em quiet. If not ,likely a CV joint going out.

Well i put the car on a lift today and checked everything, no sounds coming from anywhere, but i noticed the (L) halfshaft was new( at least not the factory one) and that somebody had dealt with the diff., since there was silicone all over it, other than that, no fluids, cv boots are looking new, , when i moved the tires while in the air no sounds coming from any part , just a little play on the driveshaft when you move it with the hand, not too much either, everything else looked almost brand new, it needed some grease in the suspension (which was done), so what do you guys think??

I say don't worry about it now. Go ahead and send the car in for a Turbo kit install and we will figure it out for you while it's here.

Otherwise give me a call on Monday and we can go over a few things to help you figure it out.

I had the same grinding. I changed the diff fluid and did the tranny fluid at the same time. I only had an hour or two of driving time before the motor went, but the diff wasn't making any more noises.
