Also bleed the system by turning the wheels to full lock, left and right, about 3 times each. I roll slowly in my driveway and just do "S's."

Look under your gf's car for anything funny looking...paying attention to the rear subframe (around the rear, rear axle carrier bushings).

Could be diff whine too...could be tires...could be tire pressure--make sure they match the door jamb pressure.
Hey dmax,

I just want to say Thank you for the info! I am actually going to go look up under her car now! I'll keep everyone posted on what it is once I get this thing figured out! I know the tire pressure is good though, I keep up with that because she dont so I try to stay on top of it lol! I appreciate everything though!
