What’s up with my rearend ?

I hope the moderators will overlook this off topic post. This is just the best tech resource I have come across.

I’m the original owner of a 2002 Tundra. (almost 300k on the odometer)! It came from the factory with a limited slip rearend. I’ve noticed an occasional thud in the rearend & a jolt after turning a corner & accelerating.

Going to check the fluid level in the morning. It’s been awhile since I checked it. Assuming it’s ok, am I looking at a complete rebuild of the diff, or is there a specific component(s) that needs to be replaced ?

Any maintenance on it? First thing I'd do is have a look at the oil. If it has a magnet and there's no chunks on it, change the oil with whatever is recommended and see if your luck is good.

Might be a u-joint, or some other component too.

Just FYI there's a Tundra and Sequoia section on the forum list. Mods might move it there.
