Have the wheel bearings and brakes checked as usually a bad rear differential will howl when driving not grind, you can find a shop here www.repairpal.com/directory

Make sure you have the carrier bearings checked cause mine was doing the same thing and tore it apart and the carrier bearings were completely out.

What make and model truck? Location? Third member, or differential gear carrier assembly repairs can be pricey and mostly not the problem. Verify, verify, verify the concern to make sure it is the problem before diving into unknown areas of repair. A typical ring and pinion gear set costs around 400 or less, plus axle bearings and seals, lubricants and include everything you need to make it as new. Labor ~$360. You can buy a complete used serviceable unit for <$150.
