When my rear diff went, I swore the whine was coming from the tranny. The noise travels up the driveshaft to the tranny.
I pulled the tranny and had it opened up to find nothing wrong that would cause that noise. My buddy said pull the rear diff, it must be bad.
That's a good idea. But I can't drive the car unfortunately. The clutch recently went out too. Don't think its a related issue since I drove with the whining noise for more than a year without any clutch issues and it's due for a new clutch anyways (about 100K on it).
