I'm not sure if all oils of the same weight are the same. A lot of us have had good experience with RedLine diff oil which is fully synthetic. If you didn't have the noise before the new oil then maybe changing to a different diff oil may help.

: Changed differential oil last week with Havoline semi-synthetic w/GL-5. Topped off to the right level, buttoned back up. Ever since I now have a speed variable whine emitting from that area. Any clues?? Its not a limited slip.
