Hey guys I changed my gears out last week and upgraded them from a 3.55 to a 4.10 Motive Gear. I kept the stock carrier and changed out the spider gears with a Yukon kit. I then bought some Royal Purple 75W-140.

Ok here is the issue I am having. When driving I can here a whine around 30Mph and it gets louder when I am at 60Mph. When I turn right the whine goes away then when I turn left I can hear it again?? When I drive straight I can hear it somewhat but it isn't as bad as when I turn left. Does anyone know what could be causing this? :att:

I am by no means an expert on this subject. Whining is a gear lash issue though. To tight it whines, to loose it clunks/knashes. Its an open diff so possibly the reduction in noise has something to do with the gears turning at different rates around the turn.

X2! I'm no expert either, but there is much more to differentials than bolt-in and go for a gear change. Try some You-tube videos to give you an idea on how to properly to set one up.
