  1. This may be from the bearings going bad. When you changed the differential fluid did you note a slightly metallic tint to the color. Shinny or sparkly fluid is an indication of the bearings breaking down. If this is the case the internal bearing will need to be replaced.

    If the fluid was nice and clean, then most likely your rear differential clutch is going out. You will need to replace the clutch and pressure plate.

    Remove the shim and the clutch guide.
