No limited slip differential.
Noise appears to be coming from the rear.
With the noise most noticeable while turning to the right, carrier bearing seems likely.
Any idea how much longer I may have (100 miles or 10,000 miles)? The noise started around 6000 miles ago, but has not gotten any worse.
I assume if the bearing fails totally then the alignment of the pinion gear will be off and the rear end could lock up and create more expensive repairs.
What is reasonable cost (parts and labor)?
Rear end was rebuilt at 117,000 miles will all new gears and bearings. Seems odd that this would go out again, but I have been doing some occasional heavy towing the year.
