    Default 1500 4x4 "heavy half" rearend

    What I have is a 98 half ton with factory three quarter ton rearend it whines and howls like crazy and has done so since I bought it 4 Yeats ago but hasn't broke yet was wondering if there's anyway to make it stop without replacing the gears

    You might be able to tear it apart and shim it correctly, but if its been doing this 4 years I suspect the gears are worn and will need replacing.
    Besides after you get it out to shim you may as well put the new ring gear on anyways, your already there.
