Open it up and assess the assembly for excess play. Have it jacked up and spin the driveshaft by Hans and listen to the bearings

Its possible, or if you hit something and the pinion angle got moved.
If any of you hit something hard enough to change the pinion angle you've just totaled your car. Sounds like a bearing a geat set issue, nothing to do with PA.
