Rear differential help

For a while now, my rear end has been having problems making noise. Its when I shift or sometimes just push in the clutch. Recently though, it sounded like a hammer hitting the bottom of the back seat as hard as you could hit it, but the thing is that noise lasts for a day or two, then goes away for a while.

It leaks so I am going to replace the seals. Does anyone know where to get the rear differential seals other than the dealer? Ive been looking for days.

backlash and flex guibo and possibly diff mount.. mostly its improper gear backlash that causes the bang. dont necessarily need a new diff just a pro to reset it.

talk to koala motorsports, cool guys over there. have lots of diff stuff.
