Question 1st and 2nd gear WHINE

Hey guys. Got an 02 1500, 4.7 with the 5 speed, 4x4, 105k miles. Under both acceleration AND deceleration, I get a nice "whine" from the tranny in 1st and 2nd gear. 1st gear is VERY loud, 2nd is noticeable, but it's unnoticeable in 3rd-5th. While decelerating and coming to a stop, if I try to put it into first gear to slow down (AT A REASONABLE SPEED), it will begin to almost "spool up" to a whine as soon as it pops into gear and I let out the clutch. Mind you I always shift with the clutch, but the whine is very loud and annoying and if it weren't for my intake and exhaust to cover it up, I'd be a bit embarassed by it. I'm not about to try any additives and such with it being a standard and I know that the fluids aren't supposed to be messed with. Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

It sounds like you have a bearing(s) starting to go out on ya . Have you taken a look at the trans fluid level recently ? It may not be a bad idea to take and drain a little bit out of it and see if theres a metallically look to it . If it is , get prepared for a overhaul . At that point it may be a good idea to install a new clutch also .
