    i think i found the problem!!! took my front tire off and checked everything out, it seems like my inner cv axle bearing is bad there is a lot of play up and down, now i didn't hear any noise before i installed it but after i installed it i noticed it while backing out of the driveway , thats got to be it, i hope toyota will warrenty it!!!!

    Did you remove the half shaft (cv) completely? If not it's possible that the splines on the half shaft was just pulled out/seperated from the diff. Of course if that was the case then you would probably be leaking 90w out of your diff.
