Whats wrong with my rear end?

I changed the gear oil, added the friction modifier, when accelerating while turning at low speed, like pulling out of a drive way onto the road I get for lack of a better description I get a womp womp womp, and I can feel a vibration. Is the limited slip going out or is the whole rear end going? Its got 152,000 miles on it. Any help is greatly appreciated

I used Valvoline synthetic gear oil, it said that you dont need to use an extra additive, so I ran it for a while and noticed the womp in the rearend so I went back to NAPA and picked up there friction modifier, put it in and it still does it

I'd drain and refill with what FoMoCo recommends.

I put the Ford additive in it and it still does it. I hope I didnt wreck anything by not running it for about 2,000 miles with the NAPA additive

Same here . Just did this a couple months ago . Added friction modifier to the valvoline and it still does it . I figure it trashed the clutches in the ls. pack .

Sounds like you guys did take out the clutches in your diff. I did this in an 88 Mustang. Same thing, It was fine until I changed the fluid.

man, i figured this was the problem, but didn't want to hear anyone agree with my thoughts! ha, whats the cost usually to replace the limited slip setups in these? I have put detroit lockers in my muscle cars that i know are reliable, but they cost me upwards of $750 just for the parts!
