Not terrible of a job to do. You will have to jack up the rear end and support it on stands and be sure to chock the front wheel so it does not roll forward while jacking it up. Remove the rear wheels and the drum assembly or rotor if disc brakes. Remove the rear differential cover be sure to have a drain pan to catch the fluid that comes out of it. Find the center carrier you will see a pin about 3/4 of inch in diameter going throught the center carrier with a bolt on one end remove the bolt turn chunk until pin comes out. Push the axle in enough to let the c-clip to be removed then pull out the axle. You will then have access to the axle seal and axle bearing. You will probably need a bearing puller with slide hammer to get bearing out. Then put back together.

Sounds more like the pinion bearing needs adjusting or replaceing. This can cause a singing rear end.This is done by removeing or adding the crush washers. This causes misalignment of pinion gear and ring gear. This is not an easy task but most race car builders and 4 X 4 people have done this before.

Have whining noise in rear end sounds like power steering noise, when turning left or slowing down


I would check the carrier bearing on the drive shaft. If that is Okay what you have described would suggest a bearing in the rear end. But I would check both sides wheel bearings. for leakage if one side is leaking it might just be a bad bearing on one side or the other.

Have whinning noise when turning right or slowing down sounds like a power steering noise in rear end


A whinning noise while turning is an indication of a worn bearing. The extra pressure put against the bearing/race during the turn and the closing of a gap creates this noise.I would chech the axle bearings on the side of the truck on the outside the curve when you hear it. What I'm saying is if you hear it when you turn left....check the right side bearing

Most likely a bearing in rear end. Pinion or wheel bearings. Have a good independent shop install noise sensors located at each bearing location to verify which one it is. Oh yes I'm assuming you have done the obvious check it for proper level of lubrication in the rear end.

99 dodge ram van 3500 rear end loud nose when the veh is moving, i have checked the rear oil and it is full.


It could be bad pinion bearings, broken spider gears, etc. inside the differential. It could also be an axle bearing. Check the insides of your rear wheels to see if there is any rear-end grease coming out near the wheel end of the axle. If there is oil coming out, then you have a bad wheel bearing. Otherwise, you will have to remove the differential cover to check for metal particles in the rear end and to see if there are any broken gears.

More than likely a bad bearing. The bearing that usually is at fault is the one on the same side that you are turning., left turn, left rear, right turn, right rear.
