anyone else have the rattling noise in their d300 when it is unloaded. Mine is fine as lond as Im accelerating or decelerating, but when coasting something inside rattles LOUDLY. I have talked to several people who say that it is pretty common and nothing to worry about but it is annoying. Any ideas? Would a CV help? My DL angle isnt too bad, not real good either.

Drive shaft angles need to be looked at, bent d-line, bad u-joints, etc.

Mine made the same noise before and after the 4:1 gears. My D-line angles were fine. My buddy's D300 bone stock except for the twin stick makes the exact same noise. Never found any shavings or any funky wear, just makes noise.

I noticed the same thing on my 300 about a week ago on a snow run.

Only when I let up and coasted, in 4wd, did it make the noise.

I think that when rock crawling I don't get up to speed to hear the noise.

I never heard the noise in 4lo only 4 high during coasting situations. I used to be worried about it until I heard about more and more people with the exact same noises.

Has anyone tried a cv? Im not worried about it breaking, it is just VERY annoying. If there is no fix, no big deal. If there is an easy fix...then...

Mine is while driving on the road. What I thought it was when I first drove it after putting the 'case in was something rolling around in the floorborard. It is kind of a hammering sound. Its LOUD. Yours must be a different sound, if you just noticed it. I pulled it and looked inside, everything was tight?????
