    Hello everyone, My name is Jose. I am new to this forum. I appreciate everyone's help in finding a solution to my issue.

    Hello everyone, just when I thought I could finally drive my car now, it unleashes a new noise. Its a 94 GT, manual transmission.
    Yesterday when I took it out for a test drive, it developed a loud noise that sounds like rubber against rubber or rubber against metal. It would get increasingly louder the more I accelerated while in gear. The moment I let of the gas the noise stops, however the moment I add the slightest bit of gas the noise begins. There is no noise at idle.

    I also did notice a vibration in the car and steering wheel the higher the rpms went. This seems unnatural.

    In order to try to diagnose it myself. I put the rear on jack stands, put the car in 1st gear and let the wheels spin, no noise. I then shifted to 2nd gear and also no noise, not even accelerating. The noise seems to happen when the car is under heavier load.

    I did replace the flywheel and clutch some time ago but never got any of this noise until now.

    So far what comes to mind is:
    Failing harmonic balancer
    Throw out bearing- but symptoms dont match and its a new TOB
    Failing belt tensioner- but would expect noise even at idle.

    Not sure. Need opinions. I am going to try to get sound bite for everyone soon for more focus on the problem. I appreciate the feedback.

    Already did that and there is no noise. It only happens under load and while car is accelerating. I will take pics of the balancer tomorrow

    I think I figured out the noise. It seems the rear end dried itself out. I think I accidentally caused the cover to open up at the bottom via using it as a jack point. I rotated the rear manually and all I heard was the ring and pinion spinning. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/UZIJcy2fvzE

    I also think my balancer is bad. https://youtu.be/Aiw4Ka5WUPU

    Here is another of the noise while driving: https://youtu.be/U4thu6vTeqs
