Groaning noise from back

Hello. Here is my most recent problem. Usually while pulling into driveway or parking lot, when i make a left or right turn, not when steer, a deep groaning noise from back of the truck. If i drive straight, no problem at any speed. Is it sign of bad bearings. I just checked differential fluid it was brownish looking and old oil smell i got. Thinking about changing the fluid but if have more problems, don't wanna change it to waste it later.
Did anyone have similar problem? I googled it but there is not much information about changing rear bearings. All i learned from youtube is until get the c pin out of the shaft. No one seems like changing rear axle bearings. That's scary.
Thanks.

Do you have a limited slip diff if so it may be the clutches when you turn making noise.

There was a TSB on the rear end on my 03. Not sure if the 05 was included in that. But mine did the same noise when I turned. It had something to do with some clips that would come loose in the rear. I had it in under warranty 3 times before I finally got them to rebuild it. Charged392 could probably tell you more about it.

Good luck with it.

The factory LS do have the issue after some hard use or higher mileage of the clips holding the clutch pack break, they then will if not caught will go thru everything and the rest of the clutch assembly come apart.

Clutches can be sticky, you would get a binding when you made a steering input, any other noise could be bearing related or brake related

I took the truck to my, everybody needs one, trusted, mechanic and he uses OEM. Drained the old black poorly replaced fluid and put mopar fluid with additive, since then I haven't had the noise anymore. Other thing I recently got them looked at was ball joints in front end and if bearings shot.

Also still as Supershafts mentioned still have brake related noise when slow breaking but wasnt serious.
