Big Problem, please halp ASAP

Well, on my way back from school, and pulling into my neighborhood, my car started to have this problem.

When I am driving it, if will "shudder" and slow down with a clunking sounds. Feels kinda like a warped rotors in the back, or like the back brakes arent working right. Thats not the case though, as the brakes are just fine. It does this when the brakes are not applied.

I was driving through very heavy rain on the highway before, and went through some water - not really deep water but I was going fast so it splashed everywhere.

This happens more often on upshifts, like when I accelerate, then the transmission shifts back, and the car makes "clunking" sound and slows down.

The "braking" is not just coasting to a stop, it slows the car down quick.

When I am in neutral, it will drve just fine.

Transmission seems to shift at appropriate time, fluid is
i checked the breather hose on the diff, its still attatched and in the right place - i cant see water getting into the differential.

I have a FRPP Differential, installed ~4-5 months ago
New poly differential bushings
J-mod

Differential bushings looked good...
Engine sounds good, no warning lights...

I have no idea what this could be... I need the car for school/work. Now its snowing hard, and I cant really work on it, I guess i need to take it to a mechanic(first time in my life )

Well, while rolling around in the snow/water under my car I discovered that the bolts which hold the driveshaft to the differential seem to be, well, non-existant. Loc-tite is my friend, Loc-tite is my friend, Loc-tite is my friend, Loc-tite is my friend.....

Anyone know the bolt size???

Now, could the car think that it is in park due to say, water in the MLPS?

I just think it has to be something to do with the water I drove through..

What else could have gotten soaked?
