Rear end noise.

Hey guys, im new here noticed by google search there was alot of usefull threads so i figure id see if any one had this problem before.

The noise is a clicking sound and only happens when i take my foot off the accelrator, so under load there is no noise. from inside the car it sounds like its comming from the right side, but under the car with a mechanics steathscope its very faint at the right side and is loudest at the left side and the center of the diff. the center support bearing, and gubio are both new. during trouble shooting i disconnected the left axle and replicated the noise so the axle and bearing on the left side are not it, the diff. fluid was changed and seemed like it was the original fluid in the car...came out black and when all the fluid drained and the bottom bit was dripping into the oil pan, it was very apparent the fluid had a "glittry" look to it was very shiny and seemed metal like, but not a single piece or chunk of metal from the fluid at all (it was strained).


any one think they know what it might be or have any suggetions?

Thanks in advance!

Humming can also be a sign the diff is on its way out.
