Banging noise coming from back of the 1958 Lincoln while turning.

I finally am getting back to working on my Lincoln and was wondering if anyone on this board might have any idea what the banging noise coming from the rear of the car could be. It shifts, drives and rides fine. It only does it when going around corners, the car does not sit quite right because the right of the car sits lower on that side. Could it be the spring is out of the pocket?-Alex.

You need to let Hoffa outta your trunk.. (har-dee-harr-harr)

I would raise and support the rear and give the rear tires a spin and listen for spider gear noises. And like you eluded to, check your springs and mounts while you're at it.

Drive Gear-(Ring Gear): 43
Diameter: 9.25 in.
Face Width: 1.38 in.

Wheew! That took awile, couldn't find if it's Posi or not, maybe someone can understand any thing I typed. Maybe by reading this someone can tell if it's Posi.

And yes, newer tires, same size.

Then you have clutches in your rear. Change the oil and add a friction modifier and drive it a few weeks and see if it calms down.

Thanks, I'll try it. I wasn't sure what it was, thought maybe it was something that needed replaced internally, thanks for clarifying.

You should change the rear lubricant, refill and add this. Drive it for a few days doing tight turns. If it doesn't calm down, it will have to be redone.
