Diff could be locking up if it's on its way out maybe.

The brake rotors could be warped too.

It is possible that you have warped rotors on the back, but from your description (and if you have LSD), I would say you have 'diff chatter'.

Pretty common in the LSD's and sounds and feels like a clunking from the back of the car.

Change of diff oil generally fixe's it. Otherwise you can get friction modifiers to limit the problem.... Can limit the effectiveness of the LSD too tho :-(

What makes you think your diff is on the way out? Is it noisy?
