Wooo could be any number of things. Rear end to vacume leak. Wheel bearings dont change from rpm. What happens when you slalomn down the road under power.

Sounds like pinion noise to me.Grab the rear yoke and see if it has any play up n down.Is the pinion seal leaking? That could be a sign of bad pinion bearings,unless you are in the mud a lot. You can try to snug the pinion nut up just a little and see if the noise changes,be carefull dont over torque your crush sleeve.

Pinion bearings. The pinion nut probably isn't torqued to the right spec. Their tricky if you don't do them right. I didn't do one right and had the same noise. Few weeks after I started hearing the howl/ whine, I let off the gas and BOOM blew the bearings and ate the teeth on the pinion right up.

Sounds like pinion bearings. One of my trucks did that last week. Pinion bearing was going out.

ya it started after the i put the lift on it and it didnt have the sye yet theres no play in it but i did have to change the yoke and when i did that it went away for like a week now im useing it as a dd and the noise is really annoying im thinking of just getting another axle and just swap it out cause everyone wants alot to change the bearing

tighten the pinion nut 1 flat and see if it gets better.

Proper pinion angle? Did you adjust it after the lift? After you put the cv shaft in? (I assume its a cv style shaft)

Cv style need a diffrent working angle than your reg. driveshaft.
