If it has a posi-traction rear the clutches may be binding. On GM cars there is an additive to add to the rear end lube you put the stuff in then go make figure 8's until it works it's way into the clutches. Confirm that it has posi rear then ask chrysler if they have this additive

It is a posi rear and if I put this in and it doesn't go away what's next a rear or money wise is it cheaper to get rear or rebuild thanks for your help
