    Steady whine from rear end.

    I have 61k on an 01 SS. Initially through the years i had a noisy clunky rearend around turns. Last Year had the pinion seal replaced and diff. fluid changed due to a leak. In the past few monthes I've noticed a steady whine from the rear end... constant noise doesn't change with speed or clutch engagement. Also the clunky noise in turns is gone. Any ideas or should i just have it checked out?

    Since everybody seemed so interested in my problem. I decided to post the results. Most of the bearings in the rear end were replaced and a grand total of 900 for the parts/labor at the dealer. Sometimes I really don't like these cars......did get a few offers to buy mine though while i was there.

    I had a similar problem recently when I got my rear oil change. They put in the 75w90syn, and that was it. I made a 1200 trip and I had a whining noise from the rear end so when I got back home I looked in the instruction manual and it said that we're supposed to get a limited slip differential additive added on top of the oil change. 4oz of the additive. I'm almost betting money that's what your whining problem was.

    I was hoping that was the problem initially but after the car heated up the noise was worse and almost a metal on metal rub than a whine. So i don't think i replaced the bearings for nothing. Thanks for the input though. Mine is gliding very nice now...lol.

    was it because they forgot to put in the additive?
