2002 GMC Yukon Denali Question: Front differential

 

Question

I have searched around and found out that the noise I am hearing from the front end of my Denali is possibly the Differential. It's a loud whinning noise when the vehicle is 20mph or faster in motion.

I need some insight and a estimate on the repair of such a problem

    it sounds like the bearings went bad. Depending on how many hard parts besides the bearings, the repair runs from $900 for just bearing work to $1500 for gear set replacement.
