Default Rear end slipping

I believe my rear end may be going out but I'm not sure. It is a 5 speed and when i take off in first gear something is slipping. I dont think it is the trnny because I have had no trouble shifting at all. Any help or info would be appreciated. How do I go about checking the rear end?

I suspect the clutch. the trans and rear end are gear drive and not likely a point of failure.

Could be the torque converter if the tranny is shifting fine. I really don't think it's your rear end unless this happens only when you are turning. If that's the case then you might look at the LSD.

He said it is a 5 speed, I figured that it was a manual shift transmission, therefore not having a torque converter.
