So....I bought my 2006 in july there was a whinning noise coming from the rear end and the dealership had it rebuilt the rear end. The noise was gone and the truck ran great and has run great until about a week ago when I would hear a lite whine on the highway. So I brought it to the dealership today to have the rear brakes done and check the rear end. The guy calls me back and said he wants to rebuild the pumpkin again! Now it's not gonna cost me a dime cuz its covered under a mopar parts failure but it is still kind of concerning to me that this has happened twice to this truck. I knew the previous owner and he took very good care of it and didn't beat it at all and I know that I had some fun with my truck of course but nothing crazy. The only mods I have is a muffler swap and resonator delete so it's not like i'm making crazy amounts of power. I just am worried that this will happen again and I'll be stuck with the bill.

I'm just looking for some other peoples input on this because I know my way around my truck but I am far from a expert.

If anyone has any input on this issue please feel free to help me out.:(

Could have been the mechanics fault.

was the rear end fluid changed at respactable intervals? how many miles on the rig? You sure they even DID anything to the rear end last time, or just swaped the fluid? Its kind of odd to swap gears and go bad alreay, unless they used a set of used ones off another truck!! Anything is possible now days, i would def talk to the manager and find out why the failure and what EXACTLY did they change, also talk to MOPAR and find out why the new part failed already. Oh yeah they should warranty you the part and labor, for such a big job IMO...again talk to management. No dealer is alike nowdays.

Yeah I know what your saying about how dealers say they are gonna do one thing and actually do another. they changed everything out and also a good family friend works at the dealership so I know it wasn't just a fluid swap thats why it kind of concerned me.

Also I bought it with 35,000 on it and thats when the original repair was done and now it has 40,000 on it.... Changes before I had the truck I do not know of....and yes they said the work is covered thru mopar so it shouldmt cost me anything

At this point from what you have said so far, all i can think of is that its a Tech's fault.

I had a Dodge Ram that same thing happened , if everything is not installed properly it will make the dreaded noise in my case torque specifications weren't exact. Human error that could be the culprit.

I have seen techs in my shop completely gut the diff two or three times if need be to ensure proper alignmnet. I have also witnessed the close enough method, just not here.

yeah I personal thought it was a human error and not a mechanical from the begining.
