2002 AXIOM 2WD, REAR END NOISE, WAS TOLD IT WAS A PINION GEAR, ANY ADVICE AS TO COST OR PROBLEM

Need a faster answer?
Yes that would be the common cause of the noise, but it would be the ring and the pinion gear as they are a matched set. This noise would be speed sensitive and come and go with throttle application, you would likely hear it best at steady speeds about 50 MPH. Other noises like bearing are nosey all the time.
