YES! Get underneath it and grab the pinion yoke, try to move it.
Now remove the back cover and look at the rear end. Ours did this, but not when coasting, and the pinion bearing went, chowdered (technical term, not a good thing) the whole rear end. Luckily it was rebuilt by the dealership under extended warranty, but it cost them $1,115. It sounds exactly like ours, I hope it's not for your sake.
