Take it back to where you had it done.

I had my Ford dealer do my T-LOK install (Stock gears with 38k).

Absolutely ZERO noise (except from tires)...

Hopefully it didn't already damage the gears or T-LOK.

yup, your gonna want to get that fixed. I've read plenty of horror stories of that kinda thing happening.. thats why i never bought gears yet, but when i buy my blower in a yr or so imma have them do my gears while they are at it.. lol just hope it goes ok.. n doesnt have a Howling noise..

its either a bad gear setup like stl mentioned or the pinion bearings were overtorqued and now they are takin a dump. either way its bad, but the bearings if thats what is bad will only make noise for so long before they cease to spin resulting in a locked up rear. dont hold out too long to have it looked at.

had the rear end checked today,,,the cars...The installer sais all the settings were correct,no apparent wear on the ring and pinion.Something was a .005 off and he corrected that. Bearing were/are new and ok. Suggested a Lucas additive to reduce the noise and get somemore miles on it. Then if it still makes the noise to check back where I got the gears and see if I can exchange them. Hmmm

You didn't go around doing wild, crazy burnouts in the first 500 miles and driving 110mph did you?

nope no burnouts for a couple hundred miles and not over 70mph,,for quite awhile yet.Only 87at the strip...
was advised to put some Lucas synthetic gear lube in it to quiet it down a bit.
Hope some of the noise gets dampened with the new driveshaft and axle housing cover.

You should try 50g of LiquiMoly MoS2 Anti-Friction Gear Oil Treatment. Great at quieting noisy gears.

When i looked into going with tracloc and better gears a guy at randy's ring and pinion, told me to go with something diffrent than 3.73 gears icannot remember the make, but he said they have a tendency to houl. I thnk he recommend the ford gear set up, anyway i bought a complete 8.8 take out axle from a company with 4.10's yet to put in in tho may never, Im trying to sell my car to upgared to a GT, Ill save the 4.10's for the Gt maybe
