yes it is , it seems to get louder when im actually on an incline while im turning as im reversing , the other thing is that I jacked up the car's rear end and spun the wheels back and fourth and it seems to have what I would think alot of play ?

Time to open the differential and see what the gods have done in there, coulod be broken clutch packs for the posi.

Yes this is normal. No need to open the rear end. Do you hear whrrling noise when running? Means, some ware. If not loud, you should be OK.

The FIRST thing I would look at is the U-joints. I would bet you have play in the rear for sure, and quite possibly the front as well. This is a simple, one hour, do-it-yourself repair that should come to less that $60 for both, included sales tax. Get the heavy duty ones, not the lighter duty, greasable ones. The ones with the grease fittings are just not quite as strong because the fitting itself weakens the main part of the joint.
