Hi
i have a 2006 V6 6speed SE crew cab with 200K miles
the diff is wining and i need to replace it
i found that he pinion was loose and even after several attempts to snug it the noise is there (it has a special way to tighten it)
also have had to replace axle bearings several times on both sides.
what years will swap into this truck?
does it need to be manual?
will a 4x4 diff work?

thanks

Assume that you are 4x2.
CC with the 6sp is kind of rare. But regardless you have a m226 rear axle. With 3.5 gears.

You can swap in ANY m226 rear axle (assumeing you are 4x2). Just make sure you find the axle with the right desired gearing. This would be a decent time to go higher or lower.

3.54 & 3.69 are the two ratios most often found.

Is your rear diff whining heard all the time or just when under a load/throttle applied?

Dang, I would have ordered a moonroof if it was available in '15. That's cool that you have one!

My '00 made a whistling sound when under load that was never diagnosed. Is yours a definite whine or possibly a whistle?? lol It was not a Dana M226, so...

Please update your outcome. Good luck.

Different diff. C200 diff and the ratio in there will be taller. KC will be 2.94:1 and CC will be 3.13:1 compared to your M226 w/ 3.54:1.
