Default Gear Noise Help

so ive had 3.55s for a few weeks, and had them taken apart yesterday and looked at due to noise 30mph + . not really any over 70ish but up to there its noticeable with windows up and music off. The shop said everything looks good, they have done literally thousands of ford 8.8's as they are one of the oldest shops in the country. They used the corrects parts for the 2011, bearings and all. After browsing the internet, I am assuming it is simply the motive gears being noisy, as many pros themselves have had this issue with them.

my question..is there any additive that anyone here would recommend? I've heard good things, and also some do nothing. Thanks for any advice.

have a similar issue here.... slight whine from 45-60 only when under acceleration..... as soon as I take my foot off the gas it goes away.... it also doesn't do it under heavy acceleration... nothing I can really do about it except exchange the gearset....

Buy an anti friction additive if the shop did not use one already. They
should have so ask them.
