Just an idea...my Ex had a whine while sitting still, but while in gear. It sounded like it was coming from under the truck, after a lot of searching, we figured out it was coming from the power steering pump. After draining the system (fluid had most likely never been changed), flushing it, and refilling, the whine is long gone. I spoke to some 7.3/PS techs and they stated that this was a fairly common occurence.

Good luck!
