Looking for a shop around the Franklin County area that knows their way around a 8.25 rear end in a 05 Grand Cherokee.
I have a high pitch whine that's loudest between 65-75 mph under light load. The shop I got it back from can hear the whine and thought it was a wheel bearing, replaced it and the whine is still there. They said it needs to get louder before they can determine where in the diff it is at (it's pretty loud). I don't think they are to comfortable with diff work. The shop needs to be ASC certified so my extended warranty will cover it.

1987 Suzuki Samurai SOA with YJ spring conversion; Weber carb.; 2" Thorly Header W/2" flowmaster; Front Diff. Rock plate; Custom Front Bumper; T-case skid plate, and much more just ask!

Might try b&d I think is the name they do good work and are out in that area. Otherwise the norm of axle boy or custom diffs.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have heard of B&D, I think I will give them a try.

I took it to brian at B&D. he did a great job, he knew what the problem was by just my description. He tore it apart and it was the pinion bearings. One of the carrier bearings was going also. He replaced all the beaings and now I have a quiet ride. The best part was the warranty covered it all.

Good to hear. I've always heard he did good honest work but have never used him. I do all my own differential work. Now to find a place to get my jeep inspected.

We do diffs, standard transmissions + tcases at my shop. Schiele has been in business almost 30 years. We have a great reputation and do quality work for reasonable prices.
