Check to see if your outter wheel bearings are loose, to do this jack up the rear of the truck about 2 inches away from the ground and push and pull on the wheel. does it have any play? if so you may need a bearing and race or cup for that wheel also try wiggling the tire back and forth to see if there is any movement. If there is none check oil level is it full? yes? then strut truck up put it in gear and see if you here the whine. at what speed is the whine? Or if it went away while running off the ground then you have a tire problem if you need more help post here for the rest of the story.

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

I have a 2006 chev 2500 HD. The steering wheel and 4x4 shifter shake very bad at 50mph. It has had a new transfer case put in, driveshaft balanced and all four tires checked. The vibration goes away if you...

u need to check rear end with the drive shaft removed vibration goes away would lead me to believe you have bad bearings in the rear end more than likely the pinion bearing
pull cover off (while fluid draining check to see if there a lot of metal in oil )
if you do see metal in fluid or laying in rear end you need rear end rebuilt or replaced
i wouldn't recommend doing the rebuild your self because with out the special tools and knowleage u can make matters worse

Whinning out passengers side window sounds like coming rear

Axle and bearing issues can be hard to pinpoint. I assume you mean they replaced the outer bearings. There are still inner bearings called carrier bearings as well as an inner and outer pinion bearing.

I would take it back and tell them they have not fixed it right yet.
