just depends on your mods and how friendly your dealer is about those mods...is the rear leaking at all? Is the car driveable? I would most likely just take it to your dealer first and give it a shot...if they say not covered under warranty b/c of mods, then take it back to your mechanic...good luck

If it starts to make noise, it could be the differential locking plates or clutches. IF the diff housing is cracked and the fluid leaked out, it may not be strong enough to handle the stress. I do know that many of the SC Cobra kit car companies use IRS setups, perhaps there is a cast iron differential available that may be used. A corvette or viper diff may also be an alternative since they were designed to handle more power.
