I'm having a similar sound coming from my NL... Check the diff oil hey... If thats ok my next step is to get the yoke checked.. apparently they do wear around the 200k.. how many km's on ur NC?

My NC has 217,xxxk's and not even a peep from my diff. Wise to get it checked before the whine turns into more of a clunk, clunk.......BANG! :P Then again, there are a few LSD diff's going around at any given time, so for a couple of hundred bucks, just replace the whole thing.

228 thou, diff fluid was low when I got it in Feb, filled it and it kept going. Its not really bad but being a bit of a perfectionist it just anoys me. Will get the Yoke checked though cos as Lane said its better to fix it before it gets too bad. Yeah Diff's are around but being in Griffith Syd/ Melb is around 6 to 7 hours away so bit of a trip to get one till I move in the next month or 2. Be nice if its just the yoke but thinking maybe teeth worn?

With the yoke, how hard is it to replace?
