Default Pick up my 18 today

It has a high pitch noise from 40 to 55 on acceleration and deceleration, taking it back in the AM.

BTW, its coming from the rear, any thoughts on this?

I'd be severely tempted to ask demand that they check the transmission fluid for water, too.

(one can only wonder what flood it sat through)

Well that a good sign.

Maybe the differential got filled with add blue 94% water. That has been reported on this forum.

Picked the van today from repair. They replaced the complete rear-end and leaf springs, also added harmonic isolators to the leaf springs.
