Question: Front Differential on 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. a year and 1/2 ago, I heard a grinding noise up front. After all was said & done they fixed/replaced my front differential, ring & pinion as well as carrier bearings.

I'm recently hearing the same noise AGAIN. Can this be the same thing in such a short time with very little use to the vehicle?! Really don't want to have to go through a $3500. repair every 2 years!!
