If your familiar with this repair there are no tricks. It involves removing the rear differential cover, removing the spider gear lock pin and retainer clip from the axle shaft before removing the axle shaft from the Jeep.

Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.

check your front shaft end joints and if necessary front hub bearings. Ive also found that there often is some benefit to backing out the steering"stop" bolts on the lower control arms to limit turn radius a bit, preventing the joints from binding as easily.

There is a loud grinding noise coming from the rearend.


Okay could be a few things, I don't expect you'd let your brake pads go so long that they're grinding into your disks or drums so it might be wheel bearings, drive shaft, universal joint or your rear differential. If you've noticed brake fade in the rear it's probably the wheel bearings due to the massive heat build up. If not, it's one of the others. If it is the differential, it may be able to be rebuilt. Anything else is gonna need replaced.

What you do is push the axle inboard in which gives you access to the clip and use a magnate to remove the clip.
