Well, then it's probably not the diff...if you loosen the slipper a little bit,

Does the truck pull to one side, like a bearing is going out? Does the top shaft, idler gear shaft, and diff stay put without wobbling inside the tranny case? Grinding is USUALLY gears.

Thank, I'll figure out which bit is the tranny and take it apart. lol.
