    Glad to hear you got whatever you thought was wrong fixed. I can't say that I've ever heard of a pinion nut being loose not causing a whine on decel but you would know your Jeep better than me. As OverlanderJK and Exodus Jeeper noted, your pinion nut is a stover or pinch nut and unless you've removed it in the past, there should have been no reason for it to back out. Every pinion nut I've ever seen come loose had been one that was reused. Good to hear you have a crush sleeve eliminator though.

    Finger Tight

    I had a 4Runner that had a leaking seal on the rear diff. Had the seal replaced and the tech neglected to pull the tabs up on the pinion lock washer. Over time, the nut worked itself loose and I started to hear noises like those described. Toyota tech told me I needed a new driveshaft (that the stock one was unserviceable - per Toyota) - charged me $200 for this diagnosis. Took it to another shop. They told me that the pinion nut was finger tight and that all they had to do was tighten the nut and pull up the tabs. Drove another 150,000 miles with no more noise from that area until I sold the 4Runner (and bought my Jeep).

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
