Odd noise after replacing rcv s and 3rd member

I replaced my birfields and 3rd member recently. Now I have a odd squeaking noise when I lock my hubs. If I turn hubs to free no noise. Itís hard to tell where itís coming from. It sounds like the birfield maybe binding up a bit. Anyone have any ideas what could be going on ?

Is it anything to be worried about or will it go away after a bit. I tried loading a video to phototbucket but they suck. The 3rd member is a trail gear one with 5.29 and Detroit locker.

Theres definitely a correlation with all the issues you've been having.

I donít see one. I broke a pass side birfield that was a decade old and just bought the new versions. The diff had a few small chips in the pinion from the abuse it has taken also a decade old. I just havenít had much time lately to put this back together and now itís all together and I heard a small squeak like sound from up front.

Second the dust shield. Pute the front end up on stands and rotate pinion by hand and see/hear if the shield is kissing the third member. A little tweaking with a screw driver usaully gets it to stop. Both mine squeeked after rebuild.

Dust shield, or birf rubbing to hard on the spindle/housing.

Some axle shafts need a scoch ground off the ends to fit right.

you dont need to put the axle on jack stands if you have locking hubs, just unlock the hubs then the pinion and drive line will spin by hand(if the transfer case is in 2x4)

I think this is the ticket. The dr side was a touch tight going in. Do I grind both ends a touch or just the diff side?

Birfield rubbing on the inside of the ball, may need to clearance the ball a bit with a die grinder. Take the Birfield off, clean the grease up, spray paint the inside of the ball, reassemble and turn the front end with the hubs locked, take apart and see were the paint is rubbed off and grind there. May take a bit of assembly and disassembly. Had to do it to mine down at the Hammers on the lakebed floor!!
