Check the rear-end housing, sounds like it might be bent?

Is this a new gear you just installed? If so check to see if the ring gear is hitting on the casting around the pinion support bearing. With gears this low (high number) you usually have to grind the casting for the ring gear to clear.

- When in doubt, hit the gas.
