differential fluid change
just had a front diff fluid change done at jiffy lube, at 100k, rear was already done at about 60k by previous owner, same fluids were used, 75/90 GL5 synthetic Euro.
However ever since, I've had a low hum at speed, doesn't make any noise at idle or any RPM when stationary.
And doesn't stop/change when I knock it into neutral on the freeway, I only noticed this after the diff change.
I know if I take it to a mechanic they won't hear it, my wife doesn't even notice it and she rides in the car all the time.
Anybody else have any ideas, similar issues ? It seems like a **** of a coincidence just after the diff was flushed.
Just to add, I've had the manual transmission flushed and replaces as well, and there was no noticable changes that I picked up after this job.

Reason: add manual trans flush
