    The bearings are sealed. You cannot grease them.

    If your bearings are making noise or vibration you may need to replace.

    You should put the truck up on jack stands and spin the wheels, listen for noise, and feel for resistance. Grab the wheel with a hand on each side and try to move it side to side. See if there is any play.

    I see
    The reason I'm asking is because i took my truck into toyota complaining about this problem. Even though to me the buzzing noise I am hearing sounds like its near the front wheel thwy diagnosed that the real differential was bad somewhere .. being under warranty they fixed it and put some new pinion and gasket in it, called me to pick it up. On the way home the buzzing started again and now I'm pissed.. called em and told me to bring it back on thursday as thats when the mechanic that originally diagnosed the problem will be working.. I have a feeling it might be a bearing

    Sounds like the bearing noise I was having. How many miles are on the truck? Mine started at 45k or so and steadily got worse.
