Gears & Axles - Loud whine at 72-79mph
06-18-2012, 08:58 PM
I'm getting a really loud whine after 70mph that's loud enough that I need earplugs to do highway driving. Goes away after 80. Almost sounds like straight cut gears. I'm looking into 4.10's, Ratech Deluxe Gear install kit, and girdle but I'm not sure whats causing the whine. Any takers?
Thanks in advance.

Do u have stock gears? Or are they aftermarket?

New gears & bearings should get rid of the whine. Check the axle bearings when you have the rear out.

Right now they're the regular 3.42's. Just want to make sure the noise couldn't be the Torsen itself to where I might as well find a new axle. Will let the potential gear installer know about the axle bearings, if I can find one.
