Default Symptoms of BAD differential bearings?

I hate to make another thread but this one is a bit more specific and there is no material to find when I did a search on these bearings. Have bad differential bearings #16, would this cause the tranny to make any sounds or noises? When the top one is spun it sounds like a skateboard wheel a bit louder than the rest of the bearings. Im replaces the input shaft bearing but it didnt see to make any noise when spun. So what would bad differential bearings sound like in gear, accelerating or at idle, clutch pushed in or out?

The diff bearings only turn when the wheels turn. The symptoms of bad diff bearings include whining, grinding, or rumbling coming from the drivetrain while the car is moving, and the pitch or frequency changes with vehicle speed.

I'm having a sound like it's binding coming from the trans only when i turn. Bought the motor from HMOnline and the car drives fine when I go straight but makes a crazy noise like I have a bad axle when I turn. Axles were already replaced too.

How hard is it to replace the differential?

They can sound kind of like a bad whell bearing. I've seen a couple that only made noise going around sharp turns @ 30mph+.

If you spin any transmission bearings by hand they shouldn't feel rough.

I replaced the input shaft bearing, throwout bearing and pilot bearing, put the tranny back together and it couldnt be any better. Shifts very smooth and is super quiet. Click the image to open in full size.
