Getnoff I would flush it out again. Make sure to really clean it out inside with some brake cleaner spray. Let it sit to dry out for maybe 30 mins, then refill. Hope this cures it.

is there a way to check that? or re-lube it? if no is the answer I am not opposed to a full axle rebuild but i am unsure who i should order shafts from. As my whole jeep is ummm "rusty" on the front and rear axle.

it was full of water. I cleaned it out best i could. and refilled it with synthic oil. but i can't seem to find AMS in the weight i need around here I have to order it. and can i go heavier? I don't plan on wheeling it ever. Just a nice looking daily driver when I am done.

umm the noise sounds 100% front end. I would assume it is. and if its the pinon it would still make noise reguardless of the driveshaft being in or out.

I can jack it up and put it on jack stands and hope it doesn't fall off. I wish we had a dyno closer i could just strap it down and not worry.


Here are some pictures of the diff that i took during the fluid change.

Timelord83 So it seems fine in 4hi but in 4 low it acts like the wheels want to hop not spin so i took it right out of 4 low before it did any damage. The whirling noise is louder in 4x4 but takes the same speed to get it to start.

Its a front end noise. But I haven't tried 4wd since i bought and that was low speed never fast enough to hear the noise to start with will try later.

I drive 100 miles a day for work, that's not an option It needs to be fixed before it goes and possibly takes out the rest of the axle in motion.

Pinion Issue?

SO my wrangler makes a whirling noise while in motion and only motion after excluding the transfer case and wheel bearings my mechanic said it could be the pinon. So I am sure also its something on the front differental as well. So today I did a fluid change and after the noise is quieter. I am going to assume that hes right but I need to price a new pinon and such.. Any suggestions as where/brand to get one. Hes a decent guy lets me bring my own parts and only charges me $35 an hour if after getting the parts myself i don't think i can pull it off in a weekend.

Thanks
