There is a weird knocking/popping sound coming from my rear axle. I had my buddy rock the truck back and forth to find where it was coming from. It sounded like the noise was coming from the driver side of the axle. Perhaps it could be a wheel bearing? I also hear it when I take off or put the truck in gear quickly. any input would be great. thanks.

I had a similar occurrence. It was a strange noise combined with vibration. It ended up being a chipped ring gear. Snorkie mentioned a good starting point, get the weight off the rear end and see what it going on. Also with the truck on the gound, put it in neutural with the ebrak on. Move the drive shaft around and see if there is any movemnet in the pinon gear, slack, etc.

Sounds like a bearing to me. Jack it up and shake the tires and see if there is excessive play in it. Mine axle practically fell out when I pulled on the tire, hell, there where ball bearings missing when I took it apart.
