Put the car up so you can rotate the rear wheels, and have someone hold one of them, while you turn the other one with the vehicle in park.
Look closely at the u-joints, and the crimped sections of driveshaft itself. Look for play or movement. Mine had one bearing of a ujoint bad.
The driveshaft is two pieces, and it can come apart. Mine rattled when I replaced it...scary.
It also took out the rear end gears and the transmission tailshaft bushing.
Search for vibration problems; you'll see this is a fairly common thing.
