Howling Rear Differential - 95 T100

95 T-100 rear end is too loud to drive on the highway. Sounds like I need a new rear differential. Partznet doesn't carry these parts anymore. I have an appointment Monday at a dealer to assess the problem. Is a rusty frame a possible safety issue? Mine is pretty rusty. I will look for a used differential or full rear end. I don't know where to look. It has 150K miles and will go further of course. I was priced $3000 to put in a new axel by a local transmission shop. Any thoughts?

Is it a 2.7 or a 3.4? 2 wheel or wheel drive?

Sorry. It's a T-100 SR-5 4WD 15 inch wheels. Stock. It sat for a few years after my dad died. I have had it for 4 or 5 yrs tho. It is work $1000 to me to put a used rear end in and just roll the dice. I have tried only one local transmission shop. It seems to me it would be less expensive just to replace what is wrong. idk.

No need to apologize maybe call around and see who has the rear end maybe one out of a diffrent truck or suv will work. Have you checked or replaced the fluid?

Check Car-part.com you may find a used rearend close by. Use the quote feature you'll get more than what is on a basic search. Good rear-ends run about $450 or so. You have to stay with one from a 4x4 since the leaf perchs are on the top. Find a shop close to you that specializes in rearends. Most 4x4 Shops do or know a good one to recommend. As far as rust! Yes it can be a safety issue but without seeing it !
Yours may just need bearings or a ring and pinion which aren't super expensive.
This guys say they'll work on any 4x4 and there less than 20 miles from you with decent reviews.

Very good advice given here. Chances are much less likely it needs a read end (unless you know it was starved of oil at some point) than it does bearings. A proper specialized shop will diagnose properly.
