Nearly 100 percent of the time it's the bearings that go noisy. Never the gears, so i don't see how it's the builder's fault. It's not the way ford build them, it's the oil they come with from factory. It causes the bearings to pit.


I've heard differently, re the root cause - improper shimming from the Dana (diff supplier) factory.
