I just replaced the Differential bearings on my Getrag unit when i swapped in the LSD. My local trans shop was also able to find them. I found them from a online supplier MROsupply.com I used the actual bearing number on the bearing, don't forget the races as well, they wear as a matched set.

Sorry guys just been working a lot, sometimes just too lazy and too tired to finish a sentence...

So apparently I tried everything and changed everything I could imagine or could think of except diff bearings. The noise would be worse at between 20-45 miles an hour and didnít sounded like anything else I could think of. I bought new tires on amazon and took it to the shop, they pulled one off ( the one that had a slow leak) and I saw liquid inside. And it hit me that months ago I put foam in it to seal the leak, but I guess after long time it turned to liquid and would make that slushing/woshing noise till centrifugal force would disparse it evenly against the walls... I couldnít wait to put second tire on I had to drive and see, that was it - just fluid inside the tire.. on another note, I got new axels and wheel bearings that I didnít need 😂

Mystery solved. Weird. We should make that a "rule of thumb". Check the most recent fixes first. Don't feel too bad, my Oldsmobile's trunk is full of replaced parts that didn't fix the problem. Occasionally comes in handy.
