I had a truck do that once and thought I was going to have to rebuild the rear end, I talked to a guy and he told me to just change the fluid and it worked for me, not sure if this will help,Hope it does tho

Service the rear or else it won't be pretty . And stick to the service intervals to . I lost the original rear in my truck because I didn't service it (I think ) every 15,000 miles .

Do you put the limited slip friction modifier additive in your differential?

Very true. However, I've heard guys say they had to put in the additive as well to quieten their limited slip differentials.

You have to have the additive in limited slip diffs, or the oil with the additive already in it otherwise the clutches inside the unit won't work properly ( assuming you have a limited slip diff such as the power-lok). My dad had your same problem, we changed the oil and the prob went away for about two days so i tore the whole thing down and found the clutches were shot. Am rebuilding it as we speak, so I'll know if that fixed the prob when the new clutches get here next week (cross-fingers).

I had to add more twice...Once I got the right ratio the poping/cracking/grinding stopped.

Our vans at work had issues with the limited slip... we put in additive and in about 50 miles the sticking clutch pack were free wheeling again...
