Matt, I noticed this on my car shortly after I bought it.  When rotated back 
and forth, the was a "rough" spot.  This concerned me as I thought that the 
splines might be damaged, the car ran OK otherwise.  I later found that I 
had virtually no oil in the diff.  I put this rough spot down to the diff 
operation but I haven't re-cheched to see if that rough spot is still there. 
  This is one year down the line and no siezed bearings yet.
