In the 2003 SSS I picked up, there is a whining noise coming from under the truck.  I was told by the dealer that they redid the rear end.  I plan on taking it to the shop this week but like to have an idea of what it could possibly be before doing so.  I am pretty sure someone has had this experience before lol.  I'm guessing it has something to do with the transfer case.  Right now, fixing that is priority number for the SS.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I would have the shop focus on the front diff, and front wheel bearings.   These trucks are notorious for "whines" from those areas.

Thanks. I like to go in there with some knowledge of the issue. What you stated makes sense in the way of the wheel bearings since the noise grows the faster the wheels spin. I’ll post an update later this week.

I would put my money on front diff. Wheel bearings are usually more of a clicking noise, especially on turns. T-case can make lots of noises, not usually howling though.
