8.8 rear end whining

I just had my rear end upgraded to a Ford Racing 31 spline differential with carbon clutches and Moser Axles. Now my rear end whines at about 50 mph. The guy that did my work is a seasoned tech so I'm sure he did it right. Is it possible the whine will go away? He changed the carrier bearings that's it. I'm just hoping it's the new parts working in.

Sounds like he did not set the gears correctly, even when they are simply removed and placed back with new bearings the backlash and angle needs to be checked.

I would definitely get this checked soon as it can cause uneven wear on the gears and cause damage you may not be able to repair without buying new gears.
