Differentials can be real tricky, are you sure you set all the clearences correctly? What kind of bearings did you use? I prefer Timken myself and all I use. You need to tear it down to see what failed.

i used all OEM timken bearings, i used the original spacers everything lined up perfectly it went together awsome, it was good for the first like 3.5 months and now its super loud again, when i took off the rear drive shaft the other day and moved the pinion bearings by hand you can feel the first one failed, it feels like rumble strips, its fooked... i had a ford tech help me put it back together too

gears are tricky i know a guy who has been doing gears for 10 years and i wont let him near my rear end with a 10 foot pool, just because he knows how to do a gear set up does not mean he can do one. i guaranty that if it failed again after only 4 mo he did not set it up right when he replaced the last bearing or there was something still wrong in your rear end that he missed. i have seen tons of bearings go out and gear sets destroyed because they were not properly installed by someone who can actually do a proper gear set up.
