My rear differential is slipping and I don't know if it

should use gl4 , but if it slipping than the clutches are worn out.rebuild time.

It sounds like it's grinding and then the rear end starts shaking roughly

If it is truly "slipping," you need a complete rebuild or just a replacement axle from a "recycler" (junkyard).
