Probably the pinion hitting the carrier caused by bad pinion bearings. Pull the cover and see if there are marks on the carrier.

Possible chipped tooth/teeth on the ring gear, or maybe a high spot on a gear tooth.

high spot on a gear tooth sounds about right. i have not opened it up yet to look at anything. i am truly ignorant about differentials...what does this mean for there to be a high spot on a gear tooth? what is the normal course of action assuming this is actually the problem?

looks like it is time for a crash course in differentials.
