LOUD NOISE from rear end HELP!

so i went wheeling today and my friend decided to do donuts in the sand while in 2wd and then a loud popping noise started coming from the rear end like in the diff or drive shaft. later on i was backing down a hill and the popping got way worse i couldn't even move a little without it popping. once we got back on flat road it went away and would only do it if we went over rough terrain. please help. pinions?

What condition are your leaf spring bushings in?

Might sound unlikely, but it can get pretty bad. Mine have been squeaking occasionally, & sometimes they are worse. I've been meaning to get some poly replacements, but OBA & on-board welder have kept me occupied recently.

Since this is cheaper than driveshaft/t-case/diff repair, I'll go ahead & hope it's the front eye bushings of your rear leafs, for you. Good luck!
