I have a 2001 Cherokee 4WD. It is all stock except for a small lift. The rear differential is really loud. I changed the fluid and checked it all out and the gears look perfect and there were no metal shavings. I put in 75-140 synthetic gear oil in. It doesn't make any noise when accelerating only cruising and decelerating, then it gets really loud. It seems to be louder when turning to the right. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I don't have a bunch of bucks to throw into it right now so I will have to do the repair myself. I can pretty much fix most things with step by step instructions.

Thank you!

so How big of a job is it? How do I know what spider gears I need? The tag on the differential only has numbers on it. I appreciate it - Thanks!
