Transfercase Adapter Broken Again

I have a 2003 f250 4x4 Short bed Super Cab 6.0 powerstroke, I paid someone to put new ujoints in since i felt they had a little slack and took my truck for a spin and felt severe vibration from the drive train followed by a boom lost the drive shaft and in the process broke the transfer case adapter in half the transfercase was being held on by the front drive shaft. When i inspected what was left i noticed the u joint had been welded instead of the clips being used.

Well i tracked down a new Transfer case adapter, new drive shaft, u joints had someone put it all together when they took it for a drive the same exact thing happend the guy that put the stuff in said he heard a loud Squeal almost like a motor being locked up followed by a boom. So im back at square one. I figured the first time it was due to the u joints being welded throwing everything off balance but what could have caused this adapter to break a second time?

Could the transfer case be locking up causing the drive shaft to jar the adapter? From searching the forum i really cant find a similar problem and for this to happen to me twice what could be causing this?

Im going to have the transfer case sent to a transmission shop and have them go through it thats the only thing i can think it would be. The rear end has a whine to it but if it was in the rear diff seems like the tires would lock up and i had a dealer ship check it last time i changed my oil and they told me it had slack but had more miles left in it.

Has your truck ever been in a front end collision? maybe the axle is pushed too far back pinching the front DS and causing the break. IDK im interested in this now.

Check your front diff to make sure its not locking up due to bad teeth as well.
