Express Tires counter guy told me the noise was coming from the differential. I took his word for it. He quoted $800 to $1300 for fix. I asked him if they were doing the work, answer was they were going to send it out. I went to parts store and priced parts--probably could get out of store for $70 on parts (pinion bearings, cup, seals, and keeping the original ring if still usable). I don't know much about replacing gears in differential, but understand gears need to be assembled within tolerances. I don't understand the huge cost? And don't want to be taken to the cleaners. Any advice on average cost in San Diego, or referral is appreciated.
