wibble wobble

Hey guys,
long time, no type. i hate to just jump on here when i need help, its like praying to god when you really F somethin up. anyways, i need some help. ive got a wicked vibration in what i believe is the driveline. It only happens between 35-55 through acceleration, and its a pretty noticeable sound, and feeling. like i said, its only during acceleration, and when i let off the gas it cruises quietly. I got under the truck and there is maybe half an inch of play in the driveshaft if i just grab it and try to turn it by hand. U joints maybe?? any thoughts?? thanks a ton..

search before doing anything, even farting, or people will shove that fart so far up your ass, your burp will smell like shit.

Sounds like it may be. When was the last time you greased them? Have you hit the diveshaft on anything lately?

Yep - noise when on the throttle is most likely a u-joint ... it's probably the one at the rear diff.

Hey Hank, we are hoping to all come down to On the Boarder a week from tonight and have a meet and greet. Will you be there? Also If you have time this sunday you could swing by the how north.
