High mileage F-150 rear end trouble

I have a 99 xlt extended cab 5.4 tritan , 3.73 rear end that's starting to make some noise. I have 240,000 miles on the truck, 50,000 on rebuilt engine 160,000 on rebuilt tranny. want to keep it , it's really been a great truck , believe it or not , the body is immaculate. I was hoping to find a low mileage rearend that would work, rear brakes are shoes.
Thanks for any help, tomhorrigan@sbcglobal.net

Have you tried removing the rear diff cover and replacing the fluid? It may save you some time and money for awhile.

thanks for the reply, yes I did change the fluid but it's still making noise. I removed both rear wheels and I found a little play when I lifted the hubs up and down, I'm gonna try to replace the axle bearings and see how that works.

Re: High mileage F-150 rear end trouble

Replacing the axle bearings is a good idea. With that many miles on it, a good chance that the noise is coming from the bearings.

It would be a good idea to drain the rear-end also and add new gear lube.

Have you check the rear-end lube level to make sure its got plenty in it?
