    I went and picked up my skid from a lot this weekend and while driving with just the trailer on I noticed a weird noise and shaking from the rearend while turning a corner. It was much more noticeable with all the weight on the trailer. Only on corners, at a straight ahead start there seems to be a little "chattering" and then its fine. Not noticeable empty unless I really get after it.
    Is it the rear end? What has to be done to fix this?

    Truck is a '02 350 deisel with 100k and a fresh tranny. I noticed this before the tranny build.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks

    It may be the rear parking brake assembly, they rot out and fall apart (dealer only part around $260). Or ir could be the clutches in the rear differential
