    Is it your axles that are moving or the whole carrier ????

    If axles it could be the clips that hold it in the diff..... Or the start of bad bearings

    I would imagine if it was the c clips the wheel/axle combo would be on the freeway taking its own ride by now as thats what holds the whole unit on. Check, lug nuts, axle u bolts and alignment pins, tires themselves, and also make sure your leaf spring hangers are solid and not rusted out in the cups.
