Q: Snapping sound in rear tires going forward and reverse

asked by on

When I start a bit hard, I get a loud clicking sound. It happens worse in reverse. It sounds like it is coming from the rear tires and is like the snapping noise of a stick being broken in half. The dealership replaced both axles, but the sound still exists. My mileage is approx. 84,000. Before I return for more repairs, please give me your diagnosis and any advice. Thanks.
