If you have that much moisture fix the problem from the outside. The vapor barrier goes on the studs. Leave a gap between t he wall and the foundation - don't use furring strips.

Tape a 3x3 foot plastic to the wall. Seal all the edges. Come back in a few days. If its wet you have a moisture problem.
