Since I bought my truck I've noticed that occationally when I stop and take off the rear end seems to shift and/or clunk. Is the rearend going out or are the u joints loose?

Huh? what would you know about axle wrap? :p

could be worn out springs on his rig as the cause.

So you guys are thinkin it might be weak leaf springs? I could get under it and check to make sure all the bolts are tight on the suspension parts and drive lines. Nobody thinks the rear diff would have any problems?

we just popped off a few possibilities ;)

sure, it could be the rear diff but that would be rare unless you really hammer your truck.

worn springs
loose U-bolts (torque them to 95#)
bad/worn U-joints
bad pinion bearing
worn shocks (very likely if they are OE)
got and blocks on your springs as a lift?

Everything is all stock besides the 31s. So if I lift it and get new shocks and gears and it doesn't do it anymore I know it was one of those things. I'll still crawl underneath and make sure all those bolts are tight though.
