the problem is in ur rear differential, the ring and pinon gears have devloped too much freeplay. it's usually pretty easy to figure out (for the average backyard mechanic) what needs to be done on it once the carrier (or pig) has been removed. I took apart a rear end just 2 months ago. so if u are a backyard mechanic and wish to tackle it yourself but still need some guidence send some good quality close up photo's of the carrier to my email joe_rota@hotmail.com.
