The bearings in the diff are much younger, I'm pretty sure I had Robbie replace them when the gears and lockers were installed. Yeah, pretty sure.

thought I would toss out a quick update...

Had front range go through the driveshaft, like I thought when I pulled it, all was fine. The re-lubed and re-balanced it and that was it. While I had it out, I drained and re-filled the rear diff too. Nothing out of the ordinary was in the old fluid I drained either, not under filled, etc.

So the re-filled diff and re-balanced shaft are back in, and the noise is gone, so it seems all is well for now

oh and the best part...the CE light has been on since I bought it a few weeks ago. I haven't gotten around to diagnosing yet, but I guess it got bored cause halfway home last night it turned itself off, and even driving to practice later on and then back home, no more CE light

Check your canister VSV. Common failure around that mileage. DAMHIK. Darn easy to fix though. Pull the code.
