Re: Front diff noise

Whine is almost always gear noise and bearing noise is a growl. The front diffs on these have a tendency to make noise and the only way to eliminate it is to replace the ring and pinion. I've also heard of guys at the dealers having to replace the whole housing to fix them. If it makes just a little noise ignore it and turn up the radio! Better yet get a flow master. hehe

Re: Front diff noise

Be sure at least that the fluid level is ok and eventually change the fluid when not done lately.
