whining

ok, ive had this whining for a few months now (dont worry, the jeep is only driven to keep the battery charged, etc.) and i cant figure out what it is! it started after i replaced the 3rd member, and i also put new wheel brarings in it a few days ago, so i know its not them. what could be wrong? ive pretty much mastered disassembling the rear end in the past month, so i know whats in there. i was thinking...would it be worth getting a junk yard rear end, rather then spending all this time?

any suggestions would be appreciated.

Did it start right after replacing the third member??

It could be the ring-pinion gears werent installed correctly. If they arent matched up they will whine, kinda lick a medium pitched hum.

Also, what gear ration is in the third member?

yes, it started right after replacing the third member

also, i had it on jack stands and ran it with only one axle installed (i did this with both axles) and it made the noise. i then ran it with no axles, and it sounded fine as i said, the bearings are new so...

the gear ratio is 3.73:1

thanx for the input, stvdman

Yes, I believe this is correct stvdman it can whine because thier isn't enough spacing, it can also whine if thier is to much but you will notice a blacklash as it slows down thru the gears. Hope this helps, but i think its the spacing put a micrometer on the gears and check the tolerance.
