Automatic transmission or manual? Could be a slipping clutch or faulty auto. Could be damaged guibo, could be bad transmission mounts.

its manual, the clutch has about 40k on it, I'm 110 percent sure its not the tranny, its gotta be the rear end...I put my car up on jacks earlier today, took the wheels off and then the rotors, everything was ok, nothing was seized or anything so its gotta be the diff or driveshaft...

Did you try putting it in gear while it was on the jacks? You might be able to hear/see something.

If it's related to power delivery it could be the clutch or the diff.

If you're gonna take it somewhere, I would recommend RMP Motors instead of the stealership. It will be cheaper and Rocco will do a better job.
