Rear End MAJOR

Speaking of new/Old Vehicles I finally got the 1973 Squareback home and
drove it for the first time since I owned it! Drove it 15 Suicidal Miles!
hehehe. Well its yellow and i told you all about it a few times here and
there and I never have time but here and there to say hey.!

Well anyway when I was driving her home the front end was driving great
no play, great brakes, killer engine running crappy because we just got
the 73 so called up and running. you know. I replaced the oil radiator
that someone that owned the car before me used their happy high speed cut
off and retardedly choped OR I MEAN sawed off the rare tin around the oil
radiator but half of it is still there! And So me the Volkswagen Human
Survivor got the oil cooler off and replaced it with a Old stock garaged
part from my ole friend  joe that gets everyone out of their type 3 rutts
some how. 

But anyway i was driving her home ok,. I thought that the back end felt
kind of funny and when I changed lanes doing about 40MPH i suddenly heard
the axle grinding into whatever it war grinding into. and the otherside
also like when I was going around some bends that scared the hell out me.
But the engine is fastend and the mounts are secure. So 
Im not sure if it would be a rear tortion problem or what. This car is
solid and ready to get repainted. I just have to tare down the ass end
down and figure what in the would the proble would be before I drive her
back in to cleves (About 12 miles away  to get painted. 

Oh yeah i forgot to mention to that the clutch was slipping real bad and
so I think the rear main seal if trashed in the motor because there was
mass (MASSIVE QUANTITY) of oil running down the road from when I turned
the car off and it only leaks out after you run it for a minute. So you
know I have a few problems to deal with.

I need some serious advice on the rear end though because I mean the hole
back of the car was moving with the gravity pull of my turn and is
definitely not normal nor have I ever experienced this problem. So let me
