    just go my Dana 60 rearend complete set, with 3:73 in too. it's made by Strange... as good as it get in terms of bolt. the diff was leaking, gear whinning... and I was at 490rhwp... time to throw the stock on out anyways... since I bought the car 2 yrs ago stock, I could hear a small grinding noise coming from the diff and a small squeak from the rear shocks or something.

    Just changed rear gear oil and put in additive hoping that would help the whining. No luck. It started aboutb a month ago. It gets bad at 55 mph. I am gonna get my gears replaced.

    The stock rearend will start whining fairly quick under hard use. I had to rebuild mine once during each season of autocross. At 14,000 miles at about 25,000miles and now at 60,000 miles and its time for some maintenance again. But it always starts whining in 5th and as it gets worse then in will start whining in 6th too.
    We quit racing this car after 2001 or it would have had its rearend rebuild at least 5 times by now. I've got about a half a season of racing, plus 30,000 miles out of this set.

    I would take it back and ask them about it anyways. It will be obvious it didn't
    just start whining. Ask them if it can still be covered under warranty.

    The reason I say this is because my drivers side catalytic coverters started throwing a code. The dealer replaced both of them. They don't always go straight by the numbers. Some of it is open to interpetation by the service writer or service manager.

    My whining noise is coming from the passenger side. Has anyone noticed noise on one side of the car more than the other? Im going to start with my wheel bearings.

    Something just doesnt sound right about this to me. Pinion seal spun around in the rear end? That doesnt make sense to me. I am not doubting this is what the dealer told you at all BTW.

    Unfortunately I have a whine that just started after replacing axle bearings. I replaced the axle shaft and bearings on the R side and only the axle bearings on the L side where it appears that the noise is coming from.
