Question about Chevrolet Tahoe
2001 CHEVY TAHOE, REAR END WAS MAKING NOISE FOR A WHILE TOOK IT TO THE MECHANIC TOLD HIM TO CHECK THE WHOLE TRUCK ALL HE FIXED WAS THE FRONT END REAR END WAS STILL MAKING NOISE BEFORE I HAD A CHANCE TO TAKE IT BACK TO HIM IT STARTED MAKING THIS HORRIBLE POPPING NOISE WHEN I TURNED THE WHEEL LEFT AND REVERSED. TOOK IT IN AND THE MECHANIC SAYS ITS THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL AND I SHOULD REPLACE THE ENTIRE REAR AXLE FROM A JUNK YARD WHICH WILL COST MY CLOSE TO 1000.00. MY QUESTION IS WHY NOT JUST REPLACE THE SPIDER GEARS SINCE THAT IS WHAT BROKE? LESS MONEY AND SOLVES THE PROBLEM HE SAYS MY DIFFERNETIAL MAY STILL MAKE NOISE. WHICH IS THE BEST CHOICE??? STRAPPED FOR CASH BUT WANT THE ISSUE FIXED...

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds
You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

The 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee was prone to bad diff bearings because they changed the plant where they were made. The new plant used inferior materials. The only way to fix it is to replace and set the diff clearences.
