Differential update

If the differential on my 95 Jetta feels kind of like being inside of a washing machine during the spin cycle at 65 mph, does that mean that it is just about to grenade into the transmission? Just curious since I stopped driving the car last Monday, after either losing a wheel cylinder or a brake line resulting in a large puddle of brake fluid in the parking lot of my work. Not worth fixing due to the other issue mentioned. It has 226,645 on it. Thank goodness this was at 4 am when no other cars were in the lot and nobody got hurt. Found and all but legally bought a 99 VW Jetta Wolfsburg (made in Germany instead of Mexico) with 141k. The car was part of a 3 car trade in including one for cash for clunkers. I am just waiting for the previous owner to drop off the title at the dealer.
