Whistling Noise - It whistles while cruising (Not spooled). Sounds like coming from the rear diff, sometimes up front too. Normal?

Slow reverse sharp turn - Sounds like the rear diff is locked when the DCCD is on auto. I've looked into it and set it to fully open and sound does go away. Should it do this on auto? All diff. fluid was changed with amsoil.
Sorry I didn't explain any of the "Noises" I guess I was just so used to them I didn't notice.

If you read the owners manual, it will explain the reverse noises and clunkyness.

The gearbox and differentials are relativley noisey, remember there is no sound dampening in the car other than the thin carpet.

Just FYI, when it gets cold and the gear oil gets thick, the gearbox noises will be even louder.
