This could be one of several problems: If the noise increases with speed, and you are only hearing it from the rear differential and not the transmission, it could be the rear differential carrier bearings, or rear axle bearings going bad. If you are only hearing the noise upon acceleration or deceleration, the rear differential ring and/or pinion gears may be going bad and the rear differential will need an overhaul. You'll have to get the rear wheels off the ground and see if you can pinpoint the location of the noise with something such as a stethoscope. If it's coming from the rear differential, you'll need to pull the bolts and the cover to determine if the gears are still in good shape, or if there is any pitting. Same with the carrier bearings; if you see pitting/ discoloration, they'll need replacement. If the noise is coming from one side towards the end of the axle shaft near the wheel, it's most likely a axle bearing going bad, and you'll need to pull the wheels, remove the diff. cover to release the C clip which holds the rear axle in place at the differential, and pull the axle out. You also need a special tool with a slide hammer to remove the axle bearing and seal.

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.

Rear end noise on 2002 Dodge ram 1500


If you have a positraction differential, you need posi additive along with the new lube. After it's in, take it to a parking lot and make tight left turns then tight right turns to get the lube between the posi plates. That usually frees it up unless there is an actual mechanical problem in the diff.
good luck!

Rear end is whining


When manufactured (new) the rear end gears are preloaded (tensioned) and the gears are aligned. The 80/90 weight gear lube is intended to help maintain that set of adjustments for 50 - 100 thousand miles (US cars) or 150-200 thousand miles (Japanese, German, Korean cars). Beyond the design limits, gear lube needs to be flushed out and new added. If whining continues, the gears have warn beyond design limits... and will fail. Exactly when failure will occur depends on the strain placed on the gears (racing, hard acceleration, towing, carrying heavy loads).

Summary: Whining is preload and alignment ware. Good lube and gentle driving will extend the life of the differential - but no one can predict for how long.
