Cool Rear end movement

On my 96 2500 I have situation that I just cannot find. When I'm under a load (pulling my 5th wheel) when I turn left or right I get a what seems like something slipping it feels like maybe rear spring is loose and letting it jurk back and forth. Now it does it with no load but not as bad. Going straight is not a problim. I jacked the truck up but can't find anything that looks wrong. Can any one point me in the right direction.. Thanks Mike.

More than likely it's your limited slip (if you have one). Did you change the diff fluid lately? If you did, I would try adding some friction modifier to it a little bit at a time until it goes away.
