    i had it on a hoist and had a stethascope to the front end and it sounds from the half shaft has minor noise but ive been told that the solenoid for the ft diff could cause a noise. just wondering if anyone has heard of this issue. or experienced it

    depends on the actual load on them. under power they would be loaded more.
