ok, im not getting any help on FSC.com so ill try here... about 1 month ago i had my rear end rebuilt... got it back and the first 200miles everything was good, no noise at all everything running good... after a 70mile round trip, on the way back home I started to hear a whining noise, i cant tell where its coming from but the whining noise goes away when u push the clutch in, so i dont see how it could be the rear end if the noise goes away when u push the clutch in.. The trans, T-case, rear end fluid is full... what should i check for now or should i just ignore it....

I thought TO bearings typically made noise when the clutch is disengaged (pedal down). When released (pedal up), the pressure is off of them, and they stop spinning.

If this is accurate, I'd say pilot bearing.

But I'm no expert. I always let my mechanic do clutch work for me.

IF on a lift, the risk is not worth it on a pair of jackstands. Yes, I have been run over.

I used to get a whining noise in my Camaro. Then I fired my girlfriend and the noise went away.

I agree with FarmTruk, I don't think the TO bearing is the issue. I'd suspect the pilot bearing too. You didn't mention one part though, you said the sound goes away when you push in the clutch. Are we talking while you are sitting still or when you are moving?

Also, rear end noise isn't uncommon. When you had the rear end rebuilt, was it rebuilt with stock gears or aftermarket gears? I'm trying to get a feel for if they adjusted the gears in such a way so that they'll last longer/put up with more abuse. Typically, setups that handle power are a bit noisy but it's generally accepted.

Sounds like the rear gears. When you push in the clutch while moving it would unload the gears which would stop the whine. When you release the clutch again it loads the gears and the whine resumes.

I wouldn't worry about it.
