put on jack stands, remove wheels, put lug nuts back on, put in gear, go look and listen.
no noise = front axle. remove rear shaft, put in 4wd, repeat above.

Mine came with grease but to beon the safe side I greased it anyway. It took quite a few pumps before I could c grease coming out so i am thinking it was undergreased. May want to try greasing it to c if u have the same issue I had.

Did you apply some grease on the pinion seal or yoke before you installed it? Did you over-torque the pinion nut?
I did grease the inner of the yolk not the outer, I'm afraid I might have over torqued it with the air gun the first time because the nut didn't budge at 160ftlb, after I removed it and took off the dust cover I just used the torque wrench to install it

YOU NEEEEED TO CHECK THE PRELOAD !!

you may have killed the crush washer, get an in/lb torque wrench and check the preload before you drive any more.
