I'd recommend you take it to a different shop. Possibly a bad u-joint or transmission mount.

Has rear diff. been inspected ? Limited slip diff will cause binding in the rear wheels as you describe if fluid is wrong or 'worn out' use only chrysler fluid and friction modifier. Symptom will occur worst on slow turns.
