Well the usually reasons for spider gear failure are getting suck in the snow and spinning the tires or shock loads or peg legged burn outs. Now with a functioning posi unit being stuck or doing burn outs shouldn't hurt the spider gears as the posi is stopping them from turning hence stopping their wear. May guess is that the clutches are worn out and allowing it to function like an open rear end. My advice is you change the spider gears and the clutch packs and that should get you back in business but just check that any pieces from the spider gears didn't damage the carrier or go trough the ring and pinion.
