Rear end noises

I need some help guys. All of the sudden today when taking turns slowly my car would begin making very noticeable whining noises. It's already been making a sort grinding/popping noise here n there but now definitely more common. I'm almost certain it's the trak lok going out but Wat do u guys think it is and how long do I have before it becomes a major issue? This week is finals week n I have to make em.

Took the car out for a quick spin down the road and there was no noise. I'm going to also look into that carrier bearing.

Could be tie rod if the noise is intermittent. Does it happen at slow speeds only?

You can jack up the front of the car and grab the tire at the 9 and 3 clock position and check for play by moving the tire back and forth. If there is any play then you have a tie rod end going out. Also you can check the rubber boats on the tierod etc and if the boot is torn then you lost the grease and the tierod will make noise.

+1 on the carrier bearing, mine was making whining noises if I turned sharply and it ended up needing replacing. I had gears put in and replaced all the bearings and seals while they were at it and no noise now

I dot think tie rods can be the issue though. The noise was clearly coming from the rear of the car and only appeared at low speed cornering.

OK so today the issue popped back up. It seems to only do it after a long drive. (A little over 100+ miles of hwy driving). As soon as I got off of the freeway and started taking some turns the popping and very harsh sounding grinding noises appeared. I wanna know if I can get some help from you guys again on here bcuz I have I have to make this same drive again tomorrow and I would kinda like to make it back lol. I am pretty mechanically inclined so it shouldn't be anything I haven't heard of if you guys give some suggestions. I just don't know where to start honestly.

Also I the car is all stock with the exception of a k&n intake, ford racing B springs, and flowmaster mufflers. I've also had the clutch and all pertaining it changed out but I'm about to have that warranted out due alot of noises and drivetrain vibrations itself....
