Super low mileage rear end creaking

I have just trader my 95 331 stroker for a 03 Gt convert. My new car has 5200 miles on it and after it is warmed up ,when I turn corners I get a loud creaking noise from somewhere in the rearend I thought the parking brake was grabbing from being stored for years but I saw no hanging up from either brake. I checked the diff fluid and i was quite runny. I see it needs 75w140 synth. Anybody have any ideas what to do next. HELP!!

I dont think Ill ask why you traded. But maybe the rear end was rebuilt and the clutch packs for the trac lok are just popping around corners. Light synthetic fluid with no Friction modifier and a "Drag Race" Clutch pack sequence build could cause some popping or creaking.

That being said I could be waaaay off not knowing anything about the car. 5200 miles is not very much, if its bone stock, could be something else. But sitting around could cause the clutch packs to dry up a bit, but with some driving should quiet up if all is normal.

Good Luck

Thanks for the input. The car is completely stock and was stored for the past 6 years. diff dry out is a possibility .I am going to take another look at the rear calipers aswell. As for the trade I am blaming BC govenment for the super strict emmisions testing. I almost broke there dyno sensors with my 331:yelpleased:
