What brand of gears did you go with? I know in your other thread you said you were watching them install them, did they get your backlash or pinion bearing pre-load set wrong?

He can keep "resetting" them tll the cows come home...
If you drove it with an incorrect backlash, that noise you're hearing will never go away... The gears are ruined.

I don't care how long or how good you are, you can't do gears without using the proper tools. But unfortunately as said above, the gears are ruined.

I don't think the gears are ruined if you've only driven a little. I paid a speed shop to install a set I was to lazy to mess with. The 30mi drive home the rear end sounded like it was coming apart. The oil in it was burnt really bad when I finally tore it apart. Having burnt oil, I replaced the bearing just to be safe. When I was done, the 4.10s sounded as good as the 3.55s did from the factory. Either way, don't let that idiot touch your car again.
