Default Differential Rear Axles on Early SSPs

While putting more than 200 miles on 0327 this week, using it as a daily driver, I'm becoming concerned about the differential/rear axle. Sometimes starting out, or on slow turns when starting out, I hear clunking sounds. At speed it is making too much noise and there is a rubbing sound. I want to get everything mechanical in good shape before it goes to the paint shop and this has me concerned.

I know the 82's had issues with the rear ends. My question: What would any of you guys recommend I do to get this diagnosed and fixed? Are there shops that specialize in this? I don't have the knowledge or a hoist to get into it myself, and my regular mechanic shop does great tune ups, smog, and other routine work but they don't like to go off into tangents.
