I put everything together again with new grade 8 bolts. Im sure I have the pinion gear depth right and the clearances right, but it still whines. Its not too loud but when your foot is slightly on the gas, the gears humm. Plus the rear end gets really hot. The directions say that new gears will cause excesive heat especially on numerically higher gears, so they say to break in the gears by driving 10 miles, stop, and let the rear end cool for 30 mins, and repeat that 4 or 5 times. Hopefully that will solve the heat problem but what about the whining? Should I just leave it be or bring it to a shop? Im sick of taking this thing apart.
