Hey everyone. My brother and I were changing out the diff pinion oil seal. Few things went wrong like got the wrong seal and lost the spindle nut for awhile (later found in trash). The markings we made in the beginning for everything to line up got erased on the nut so we had to torque everything to factory pre-load spec. Thought everything was good until I started driving down the street and truck started making a horrible droning noise and shaking in the back. Anyone have suggestions as to where to start in fixing this issue? Any information would be appreciated.

You may have over torqued a bit and it’s binding.
