Does not do this all the time and doesn't make a difference if it is wrm or cold, new brake pads, calipers and rotors less than two days old, what could be causing this, my local ford dealer Mathews ford in Newark Ohio said they couldn't find anything wrong, and showed no Concern about any problem

Did it happen after the brake job or an on going problem.

Ongoing problem, I didn't think the brakes would fix this problem, I only changed the brakes because the were wore pretty bad when I had the wheels off doing an inspection looking for the cause of this problem

Change, drain and refill, the gear oil in the rear, and if 4wd, front as well. Use synthetic gear oil, and any recommended additive. Do the transfer case as well, if 4wd.

Will do this, but could I ask you what this will do to fix the problem, the rear diff was just rebuilt approx. 3000 miles ago, at a ford dealership, my problem started before that Wes done though

The limited slip clutches usually groan when not lubricated properly and without the correct additive. It happens a lot in other makes and models. If they rebuilt the rear end and didn't separate the clutches and clean them they could very well be causing the noise. Other noises in transmissions have been eliminated by changing fluids as well. Just a thought on the maintenance side of car repair.
