Question Popping Sound from rear when backing up

I am looking at purchasing a 1999 7.3 diesel F350 Dually with 50,000 miles. It has a popping sound in the rear wheels when backing up and the steering wheel is turned. Is that the rear end? If so, does it need replacing?--

Add some Friction Modifer to the rearend, I'm guessing rear lube was changed and it didn't have any added to it. My Dodge and a 2001 PSD did the same thing when synthetic was put in them.
