Have you changed your differential fluid at some point during the 146,000 miles driven?
If you have not. I would do a flush and fill.

If the problem persists then something needs to be replaced gear wise.

I hope it is just a flush and fill.
If you have a limited slip differential which I am quite sure you do, make sure you add the adhesive additive in the "rear" only.

Good Luck;
Rick
