Hi new to here.
Anyone have any ideas on curing diff whine on decelerating?
Also leaf springs wallow a bit and I want to lower it front and rear about a couple of inches. Anyone done a snipe?
Looking in to banding the rear wheels so I can run fat and thins.
Then bodywork

If the whine is on overun/deceleration only it'd be worth checking that you don't have any endfloat i.e. in and out movement at your pinion flange. If there is any movement at all, either the pinion retaining nut has come loose, or your pinion bearings are knackered. In either case the endfloat will allow the pinion to be pulled in towards the crownwheel on decelaration and pushed out on power; this is a function of the the helix on the pinion gear.

Don't want to be a Jonah, but If you do have this problem on your car, it's really worth getting it sorted PDQ, or your axle may suffer some busted teeth at some point when the pinion gets pulled in towards the crownwheel's centreline instead of being held in its proper place by the pinion bearings' preload.
