Unhappy 5th gear growling???

I have a 1998.5 dodge diesel with 24 valve cummins 5 speed. 5th gear sounds like it is going to jump out the side of the housing. Last year I put the self locking nut back on the tail shaft and spot welded it in 4 places. I have had no trouble out of it and put it threw some hard times. Gear oil level is fine and no metal in it. Help!!!????

Could it be the gear is moving a bit? The reason I ask is because I have heard that tacking the nut on for some reason doesn't seem to work every time and some have had the nut come loose after it was welded. Here is something else I found that may be of some help:
Quote:
The most often cause for this is from not setting the main shaft and counter shaft right in the tolerance but it can also come from not packing the bearing right and if wears the bearing down from getting hot right off the start. the tolerance on these should be between .02 and .07 thousands. If you want to check yourself you can pull the back cover off and see if there is any slop going from front to back. The tolerance is so little that if you can feel any slop at all than it is wrong. What happens is that the shafts have enough room to go back and forth and start chipping away at the gears next to them.

So, did you fix it? If so how did you do it?
