Exclamation 2004 6.0 driveshaft hit the gas tank

2004 F350 SRW 6.0

Let me start by saying it looks like the slip yoke on the u-joint hit the gas tank cross member. I just replaced the center support about a month ago. Doe anybody have any ideas as to how to fix this it clunks in first and 2nd almost like its spinning out of control.

I have no idea. I was told it was normal but by your reaction it might not be but also it wasn't that bad until I noticed the clunking today so I parked it until I could figure out what was going on... I just checked the transmission mount and it looks ok but I could be wrong.

Does anyone have ideas as to how it could have been thrown out of alignment like that and any ideas on how to correct it?

Well I got it down to my ford dealer somehow the center bearing cross member got torqued an it's bent which threw out the driveshaft into the gas tank. Center bearing is now also shot. I won't get it back until mid next week total cost for repair $1233

Would a traction bar help with this problem in the future?

lol yeah...I just don't have the time to play with the welder this weekend working 70+ hours and 18 credit hours in school kind of kills any work I should be doing to this thing. That dealership has been good to me over the years and the cost of living here in Montgomery county pa isn't cheap which brings it up a bit.
