Rear roating knocking noise

I'm new here, I purchased this VR4 that was listed on the forum here (

It's pretty clean, with some rust (but what can you do for the year)

The only issue I am having is there is a rotating knocking noise in the driver-side rear.

The previous owner said it was carrier bearings, but I checked both and they feel fine (Old but fine)

Axels have normal in-and-out play, along with the rear end having a bit more backlash than I'd like, but it's a little loose.

I'm going to check the rear diff fluid this weekend (after I clean the undercarriage)

Does anyone have any ideas?? Before I go digging a crazy amount, I wanted to see if anyone else had issues like this.
