Trying to work out what is going on here. Symptoms are:
1) Grinding noise when coasting with manual transmission in gear and drivetrain is not under load e.g. no noise when going up a hill but appears when going down hill
2) No noise when not in gear
3) Noise even worse when I reverse
4) Springs have been changed

I suspect the axle as one of the rubber boots near the diff seems to have a tear in it. How can I confirm and is this a big job?

Thanks!

Yes it is a big job, if you don't have car lifter and special tools for removing diff rubbers.
Just have a look at rubbers, you will see wear..
