I think my rear end is going

I have a 2003 F350 Dually. I have a howl coming from the rear end, it seems to go away after a it warms up. My question is, how bad is this? and will it just blow or will it just keep making more and more noise?

I noticed just before I moved to Manitoba that it was low on fluid, I topped it up and by the time I arrived here, the fluid was leaking out of the axle seals, I have changed them, and its topped up. but I think the damage is done.

Does it change sound based on load? If you let it go you will have metal shavings in the oil and more damage will continue.
my 08 was the pinion bearing going out, was less noticable costing, more when slightly accelerating or under load, goin up a hill. You need some big wrenches and possibly a rear case spreader to get carrier section in and out easily, can be done without(i did) but not easy.
