02 shutter felt in rear axel

Hi all
I'm wondering if anyone could help me out? I started feeling a shutter in the rear end of my mustang gt 02 when the car is going from in the 35-40 mile an hour range it seems like when it shift is when I feel it. It doesn't do it any other time. I change the oil in the rear end and it seemed to help it for a while but I think it was a coincidence. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Really? Have about 110000. Is it hard to rebuild? Is that common?

I heard a lot of v8 have problems with gears and stuff Idk. I have a v6 my gears are fine I opened mine for the tlock to add. Depends on what you need to do. I would say if its a full rebuild hard job. But I'm thinking your tlock need to be rebuilt I never done that but getting it out isnt crazy hard but not crazy easy. If anything just think of it as a good time to upgrade man

is maybe a crazy question but what is tlock? When I had the cover off it didn't lock bad and I didn't find any metal filings in it. Man usually how much is something like that?

Did you put in any friction modifier additive when you changed the oil?
If not you might want to add some and see what that does before you tear it down for a rebuild.

tlock - is an abbreviation for "Traction Lock"

Traction Lock Rebuild Kit - $110

Installation and Bearing Kit - $75

Looks like you can buy a new differential fairly cheap too.
It's just $70 more than the rebuild kit.

Differential - $180

Well like he said did put the right fluid. Then check if you can do a two week burnout . Then if you can't time for a rebuild and yes its around 200-400 for install

No I didn't put any of the friction stuff in it. The bottle said it was included and therefor I didn't have to add it.
