Rebuild your rear end, it sounds more expensive than it is

It wont go bad from sitting, the clutches wear like anything else so its either due to regular wear, abuse, or someone changed the gear oil and didn't add the friction modifier. You can change the clutches yourself, hardest part will be getting the spring back in place.
