these trucks are also knows for their rear ends going out, maybe not so much going out but the gear lash from the factory must have not been correct and the gearsets wear out pretty quick. I think that wining noise is your rear end. mine have allready replaced with correct lash and adjustment and lasted twice as long as the stock set, my truck has allmost 260,000 miles on it and the ring and pinion got replaced i think 140,000 miles ago. my brothers ram truck also has a rear end wining and his has only 135,000 miles. with that in mind see what you can find. i hope it helps.
