Axle problem?

For a while now I've had a popping problem coming from the rear end.

I notice it when I'm going very slow. Just creeping with my foot still on the brake. I can look back at my tire and watch as they shake with each little pop and it wobbles the whole rear end of the jeep. I've had many people look at it and they have yet to find a problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have a lunchbox type locker?

No locker at all. It's just a Dana 44 with 3.73 gears..

Maybe trak-lok then? Or whatever that cheap factory limited slip was. If your positive you have open gears you possibly could have a chipped tooth.

Honestly not a clue. I know it's limited slip. But I have been thinking there something messed up inside the diff. The next break I get I plan to bust it open and take a look at it..

I have a Dodge truck with a much larger Dana that does that, I was told to drain the fluid and refill with new and the additive.

Another problem that may have an effect is that when I first start it up and start driving, it will go into neutral for a second then finally shift. It's an auto by the way. But I read that I can fix that by doing something with the speed sensor than do a good tranny flush...
