Rear end noise

Hi, I'm having the same problem, I've tried everything I can think of, it sounds like someones in the trunk with a hammer when I take off or sometimes when I shift.Very anoying. try when the car is on the ground grabing the rear wheel with both hands and rocking it back and forth, it will make the noise. Sorry I can't help but I'm still working on it. I have an 87 5.0 Converible.:heha:

U joints? Sub frame connectors will do wonders for old fox verts. Have you looked at your torque boxes? Mine had to be rewelded more than once.

Possibly the rear control arm, shocks or quad shocks may be loose also. I also have a vert, seems like its only on them gunna have to keep an eye out for that noise when shes back together. I would say check out your rear control arms because the extra weight of a vert put alot of strain on them seeing as their weak to begin with. Let me know if you guys figure this out just incase it happens to me!
