REALLY NEED HELP WITH AN 03 6.0!!!

I have tried to post this on the trannie forum a few times, but have not had ANY luck with replys. I just figure that there might be more viewers on the motor problems page. Anyways. When i am moving, say over 15 miles per hour, let off the throttle and then punch it, i get a very noticeable clunk. When i am stopped and i punch it, no clunk. Trannie shifts fine, no codes. Feels almost like driveline splines?? Or maybe U-JOINT. Every time though, let off throttle, give it throttle, CLUNK!! Please help. I am starting to wonder if it is something serious.

i checked them. I did not take the driveline off to check them , i just got underneath when the truck is in neutral, and checked for play. None, do i need to take the driveline off to check? truck only has 53000 miles.

you can find out if its a u joint by putting the truck in neutral, and getting underneath and moving the drive-shaft at the u joints. if there going bad, you'll be able to feel and see the slack in them.

make sure you scoth the wheels tho. lol

If it's an extended or crew cab truck it could be the driveshaft splines needing grease. It's hidden inside the rubber flex boot just ahead of the differential. The lube ford uses is a "dry" teflon base and allows for that stupid clunk. Get some good synthetic grease and grease 'er up. You have to take the driveshaft out for that. Be sure and scotch the wheels.
