DriveLine Left The Scene!!

ok, this is gonna be long,,,

Situation/what happened: traveling with cruise control set at about 73mph, empty i heard a terrible noise start. i had enough time to turn radio down to determine the issue when all of a sudden a loud bang and i was powerless. pulling over and observed NO driveline anywhere to be found.(had to walk back about 100yrd and out in farm field to retrieve)

Lead Up: after installing a 4" four-link BDS suspension lift in the front and 2" taller blocks in the rear and about 3/8"(per instructions) spacer in the carrier bearing i had a slight vibration/shimmy under Moderate to Heavy acceleration. (also running 35"tires MT tires)

Followup: Battling with Ford we agreed to split the bill 50/50 since i had barely 5,000 miles since mod and only 30,000 on truck total. and it was a minor size lift. they had to replace the complete rear driveline and yoke. Now i do still have a slight vibration/shimmy under hard acceleration.

The BIG QUESTION: what is the cause of this?? about 1/2 people say its axle wrap, other 1/2 say it isn't.. pics to follow..

Your truck is the same as mine ccsb right? You should have no problem local shop did mine, just cut of the ends on my stock shaft welded them to a one piece shaft. High speed balanced done cost me like 300 bucks I think, best money spent. A lot of places I called told me the same thing it was to long, as long as its not a cclb that a different story. Not sure where you are but try any local big rig truck parts store that carry drive line parts etc. Thats who did mine.
