SOURCE: rear axle leaking
Block the front tires. Break the rear lugs loose. Jack up the rear of the truck at the center if possible. remove the wheels & brake drums. Remove the brake shoes,return springs & all the other hardware. Remove the differential cover & drain oil. If you have a posi the next step sucks. You need to remove the threaded pin from the housing & remove the axle retaining clips. All the while,being carefull of the spring in the posi unit. If no posi,then same procedure,minus the "pucker factor". After the axle is out,take a large flat blade screw driver or pry bar & pop the seal out. Keep in mind the axle bearing is probably gone too , so that's another procedure. Keep it apart,you'll be glad you did.

I just delt with this situation myself. I don't know if this is the same solution, but I had the same problem. If you take the panel off the door, you can probably push the rod that opens the door by hand. it's likely the handle isn't engaging the rod enough to open it. if that's true, just pop out the plastic bushing and screw it out (toward the front of the vehicle). Also, you probably want to lube up the latching mechanism. I had to actually cut a hole in the door to get mine to open (had sat for a couple of years). These handles just need adjusted after awhile.

Any noise from the rear axle can be coming from many different causes, depending upon exactly what you are doing when the noise happens.
Check all mounting points and make sure none of the bushings are loose and that all hardware is tight. Jack up both rear wheels and check for play in the wheel assemblies, Check for any up and down play in the pinion yoke and excessive turning distance in the pinion itself (how far you need to turn the pinion before the rear wheels begin to turn). Also check the driveshaft universal joints for rust or excessive play. You need to find what is worn or broken before you can fix the problem. If you can duplicate the noise while standing still, have someone look underneath while you get it to make the noise. You may actually be able to see what is moving.

Testimonial: "Thank you for this advice its good to know that there is such a wide range of willing help out there Great Work!"
A code checker has to be hooked up to clear the codes after a repair. Most auto parts stores will let you use theirs at no cost. I hope this helps.
