Default 07 FJ Cruiser differential

Hi folks,
A quick differential question to you. Recently I noticed that whinning and determined that it's coming from the differential. It is an '07 FJ Cruiser, so I was wondering, whether it would make sense to try greasing the bearings first, or I'd better go and buy new differential bearing repair kit?
From your experience, what would you recommend doing? Cause I am in doubts.

Okay, I decided to try the rebuild kit (https://www.carid.com/differential-bearings/) and see whether that will do it. And I still have several months till the start of the real off-road season, so have got time to figure it out.... Wish me luck haha

As you probably have figured out the diff bearings are lubed by the gear oil and not grease. The front hub bearings will like make a grinding sound rather than whining.

Either way good luck.
