I live in virginia and we just got a big snow, last night I was parking at my mother's and tried to park in an open spot (about 12 inches unpacked undisturbed snow) the frame was dragging. I had no problems in forward at first when I put it in reverse something happened and it now pops once or twice for every wheel rotation on th right rear wheel, mostly in forward not so much in reverse now that the problem has matured 15 or so miles. the awd still works. my v is a 2005 ex with about 77k gets fair amount of off road driving(nothing extreme just commuting to hunt camp on packed dirt trails) It is not the diff fluid as I experienced this problem when I bought it and fixed it. this noise sounds very severe and I don't want to drive it if I don't have to until I can get it looked at. Anyone know what might cause this and could it be a simple fix? thanks for any help!
