    What is the thickest Diff oil you can put in the rear end to quite it down. Has been rebuilt 3 times cannot get whine out of it, Axles been replaced, case replaced, Drive shaft U joints wheel bearings the list goes on.

    Is it limited slip, and if so have you added the friction modifier?

    You really should stick to the 75W-140, and use the friction modifier to quiet it down.
