So are you 100% sure you don't just have a worn or loose bushing or bad U joint?

This is usually the cause of noise back there.

They are all new and I took the half shaft's back out to see if a needle fell out of the U-joint's.I even put new brake's on to see if the pad's rocking in the caliper's were making the noise.

hotrod,

I know the feeling...

I chased a noise for almost two years in the rear end of my 1981 ended up being the "Differential Cross Shaft" being worn in the rear end. A set of new gears took care of the problem for me. I changed or had everything else in the rear suspension... U-joints, rear end donut bushing, shocks, trailing arms, calipers, rear spring bolts and bushings changed, and made several visits to two Corvette Shops..

May the force be with you on your journey to Corvette Mecca ;)
