    Maybe the axle nut loosened.

    The nut has a built in lock washer and it wares out frequently from constant tightening & loosening.

    It wouldn't hurt to change the final drive oil.

    Use 80-90 weight "hypoid gear oil"

    It's never replaced unless specifically asked to do so during routine maintenance.
