    Default Noise in rear of car when making a hard turn

    I have a 2008 Vette base model with automatic with 115,000 miles. When I make a hard "full" turn at a slow speed, I hear a rubbing noise coming the rear of the car. I have had my dealer look at it to no avail. Any idea what it might be?

    Did the dealer recommend a rear differential fluid change while you were there?

    Try doing a series of slow, tight, figure 8s in forward and reverse in an empty parking lot. You'll probably hear it a lot. If it doesn't quiet down, then changing the differential fluid should take care of it. After the change, be sure to do the same figure 8s to work in the fresh fluid and additive.
