Does sound odd though - I can't even take a stab at this one other than trans shot?

and as for the mystery jack it up and try to rotate one of the front tires if it rotates smoothly and the other one rotates the other way it isn't the spiders but also put it in neutral and try rotating it and hear for any popping, grinding or anything else cause it sounds like the diff is gone
another thing to look at is the hill holder if it has it and check the cable that goes to the clutch if it's busted then realease the spring on the hill holder and zip tie, wire tie, or string tie the holder open and see if it works now
but to me it sounds like front diff is shot

Can get them from the JY for around $150 (with warrantee)

IIRC the hill holder works on the front left and the right rear

Had to replace tranny since the diff and trans are together, allthough they can be seperated but it wont work out since the gears are meshed together and introducing new gears wont work out
It cost me $650 for a new 3AT w/60k on it and $200 for labor from a ASE Tech at my work.
Lession you now should learn is to CHECK AND CHANGE YOUR FLUIDS!!! The DIFF/Trans Fluid is allways forgotten about yet damn near the most important. Mine was black

I thought that only RXs got that! Pretty cool.
I would definitely think it'd be worth rebuilding just because it's so rare.

and i assume this happened on highway 30? i drive it every night to ge to work
and well yeha i suspect the front diff it toasted as well
if it does have diff lock and nifty stuff..
and if your really in a jam
you could pull apart the tranny case remove the differential
plug up the output holes<to keep crap from getting in>
and run it with the center diff locked,
has anyone thought it may actually be the center diff?? thats fubar?
<note i have not read all of the messages>

I dont know where you are located but there is a junkyard in Denver where you can get a used 5sp D/R for $67 with a 30 day warranty. I just pulled on yesterday to put in my 82 Brat.
