Default Ring pin noise

Ok, so I had a leak in pinion seal on my 8.8. I had a mech put a new seal in for me. Now I have a noise coming from the rear end now. My question is, did he over tight'n it putting it back together? There was not any noise before hand...

With the trans in n, and the parking brake set, roll under it and see how much back and forth twist you have in the drive shaft. Depending on miles the amount will be different, but there should be some, if not, then he over tightened it.
