I had whining in the front end my mechanic determined it was the differential so he replaced the whole assembly from a low mileage vehicle, for some reason he felt the transfer case needed to be replaced as well. Shortly after these repairs I burned up the rear differential and it was replaced. This time he found a "matching" set front and rear and installed them both. I had driven a few hundred miles on the highway after the latest repair and the front differential failed again (loud whining and some smoke coming off the case). I was closer to my destination when this happened so I had another shop rebuild the front using all new parts. That shop drove the vehicle for a week or so to break in the new parts, when I picked it up and began my drive home it failed again in the same manner. What can be causing all this destruction and headache?
