"clunk" after coming out of reverse
Guys... I need some help. I'm hearing and feeling a clunk after shifting into drive from reverse. Here's the situation:
1 - back out of the drive way; 2 - come to a complete stop in road and shift into drive; 3 - proceed under very little skinny pedal (if any) and within 15 feet I feel and hear a clunk in what appears to be the front end. It almost feels as though the entire front axle is moving. It only does it when coming out of reverse... everything is normal when proceeding from a stop, turning, etc...
It's a 2004 F350 Crew Cab short box FX4 with 123,000 miles. Stock suspension. The only work I've had done (only owned it for 5 weeks now) is rear drive shaft balanced with new u-joints and mid-ship bearing, alignment with tire rotation. New swaybar bushings at the axle housing and new end links.
The axle u-joints appear to have been replaced recently as they are greasable type joints. I can also reach in behind the front wheels and turn the shafts so it's not stuck in 4wheel drive.
Thanks for any / all thoughts and suggestions.
