Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
When looking under while someone trys to back up, looks like the front of the rearend jumps up and down, looked at all the bars connecting the rearend to the truck and none seem to be broke off. it shakes really bad and hardly will back up at all, feels like something binding up. nplease help
Either the reverse gear is binding up in the trnsmission, the differential has issues or if its a stick(manual shift) the clutch needs adjusted or replaced..repost findings...

Sounds very much like a broken coil spring. On such a new vehicle that seems unlikely but it is possible. Another possibility is a blown seal in one strut. Again, not likely but possible. If you do a lot of off roading or possibly may have hit a curb or pothole hard enough it could have broken an already defective spring or blown a seal in a strut, causing this issue.

I'm not 100% sure on your vehicle but on all the differentials I've changed the oil on the plug always seems to be very large. I don't know if it is because the oil is so thick and it makes it come out easier or what but I just did my Trooper and it was a quite large socket I used to get the plug out. I've never had springs or anything behind them. As far as an additve I would ask the guys at your local auto parts store about what you need for an AWD since I've only ever done 4WD but what I use is K&W Products/7 oz. Posi-Trac Gear Oil Additive which you can get at AutoZone for like $5. Hope this helps and good luck. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa

This is either the uni joints or the center bearing if it has a 2 piece tailshaft. Uni joints can be quiet dangerous if they let go. jack the back end up, handbrake off and in 1 hand hold the tailshaft, in the other, hold the diff pinion (input) wriggle them against one another. if there is any movement this needs to be replaced. center bearing- if there is any movement this needs to be replaced.
