Help!!! I have a 08 evo x with about 40k on the clock and its my daily driver and I drive her with care. Early this week it started making a grinding/donkey moaning noise from the rear (almost like its coming from the diff) and it only happens when accelerating in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and when cornering at speed with a shift of weight.. I took it to the dealer and the tech could get it to doit in normal driving but when put on the lift they couldnt. Now that I have been thinking and doing some research I am thinking its the AYC. i have seen alot of issues with them online including them being burned up and I would like to solve this issue ASAP. I have 2 seperate videos where I have recorded the noise while driving.. Thanks in advance Brandon

First thing to do is to keep accelerating and making videos... Don't bother going to a service center, that is overrated! :whipping:
