    Have you hooked back up the gear selector cable to the trans? If so, have you shifted out of park to L1 then checked to see the drive shaft move then back to park and see the drive shaft locked? If all that checks out, drop the car back to the ground and see if it rolls in park.

    You have been added to my 'ignore list' until you learn how to use punctuation and the Shift key.

    It's the way a differential works. When it's in the air and you turn one wheel, the spider gears will allow the wheels to spin independently of the pinion and ring gear.

    If you don't want to drop the car on the ground. With it in the air and in park have someone hold one wheel so it won't turn, then see if you can turn the other wheel. If you can turn the wheel and the drive shaft turns as you turn the wheel then the trans is not in park.
    If you can't turn the wheel then it is in park, unless you have a posi rear end.

    That's what ^ this was! You didn't know what you were doing and still wanted to resist my encouragement to put the car on the ground. So I laid out the cost to inspect the rear in order to clear your mind on the rearend before you dropped it to the ground. I didn't question why you would rather pull the rear cover than put it on the ground first, but you made it clear that putting the car back on the ground was not an option.
    Sorry for the advice.
