Switch the rear end lube to synthetic as see if that helps. Also, is it contant, or only during "float" condition -- that is, constant speed with little or no acceleration/deceleration.

Likely it is some wear, but I'd not tear into it unless it is so bad you can't stand it, it's gonna be expensive.

Mine has a whistle too, about the same speed, haven't changed the lube yet, but I've been told it's not worth the money to fix it.

Verify it isn't the tires, too -- I don't remember hearing it so much after I put new tires on!
