Rear end clicking

alright, topic says it, just got my rear diff fluid changed by the mechanic about a month ago don't ask what type of fluid, and it coincides with the speed (faster=faster clicking) and doesn't do it when in park or neutral

it actually sounds like its coming from one side more than the other, but i couldn't tell you that for sure right now because i have no one to drive it and let me listen.

lemme know what ya'll think

do you have limited slip? he could have forgot the friction additive. or it could be a axle bearing. and this sounds really stupid but i have seen it happen probly not the case make sure there isnt any rocks stuck in any tire.

Do you have the hub cap syyle wheels? It could be the cap not locked on tight or even a lug nut off rattling around.

^^ no, i have no hubs

and last night i took a closer listen to it, i rode in the back of my truck while a friend drove it around his culdesac, and its more of a creaking sound coming from the right rear tire, so it might be the drum i'm goin to have to try and take a look at it.

If its a creaking sound. It is probably the leaf spring bushings which is typical.
