Recently I have noticed a clicking noise from the diff on my Maverick Diesel and the tailshaft has about a 5 to 8 Mm freeplay. Is this serious and what is the remedy as the clicking noise gets on my goat when going through the gears.

My Patrol has the same freeplay... But it is actually a worn crown-wheel and pinion from the previous owner towing a 22foot caravan for 30,000kms.... My rear diff also whines like stink but i just turn the radio up a bit more...And the clicking noise i make go away with perfecting a smooth gearchange..___________________________________
