GMC Yukon Denali Front/Rear Differential May Develop Noise Due to Worn Bearings

(8 reports)

The front or rear differential may develop an abnormal noise due to worn bearings or another internal fault. Our technicians tell us that a complete overhaul of the affected differential is commonly necessary to correct this condition.

front end making a winding noise -
front differential went out after I was initially told it was a bad axle. Repair cost quadrupled -
Sounds like I am dragging a muffler but coming from the front end of my car. I think my car has about 85,000 miles. They are pulling the front end all apart removing from tires and axle. Haven't gotten it apart yet but I am sure it will be expensive. Thank God a GM service center is not doing the work. They said it is the differential. Does anyone know if there was or is a recall on this? -
After 30 or 40 miles on freeway, whinning sound from front end. Gets louder but levels off. When you slow down, sounds like metal grinding, REALLY bad. If you turn at low speeds, gear skipping feeling, wheels shake. If I let the truck sit and cool for a few hours, its ok, until 30 miles of freeway, even at 60mph. This is the second time with this issue. Replaced differential twice; at 63,000, then 90,000 before, and here again at 98,000. Hate this truck. $50,000 piece of junk. My 98 Pontiac was 3500 bucks, and I drive it instead. I will never get 100,000 miles on this Denali, because I can't drive it! -
