SOURCE: Rear end noise
Well it can be quiet a job the truck is 13yr old and all the nuts and bolts get rusted and will have to be cut off probly. The dealers go over board some times on what needs to be fixed. What i would try first is remove the rear diff cover and drain all the grease out go to napa or a parts store and buy a product/grease called lucas oil and fill the diff with this and give it a try first if all elese fails i would look around at a junk yard for a used rearend and have them put it in probly be the cheapest way .

On the rear differential there will either be a metal plug or a rubber plug. The metal plug can be removed with a 3/8-inch drive ratchet. the rubber plug can be removed with a small screwdriver. Faceing the axle from the rear will see the plug to the right side on the cover plate. Remember to also check the front differential as well. Hope this will help you.
