Extremely close second up in the heads up department after isolated to the driveshaft,,, is making it clear to service writer, that you are requesting that the mechanic make indexing marks in thin paint lines from diff connection to drive shaft and across any and all slip and joint flanges to trans or transfer case, obviously depending on your model.
Tech's failure to do so can change a simple, "pop on take off, (not upon putting into gear) ( it's a pop from splines gripping force from rotational torque, pulled away due to distance change from axle twist) abruptly breaking free allowing shaft to lengthen, occurring due to lack of lube allowing splines to hold torque but not freely slide within each other ) simple repair to a vibration chasing issue that will make some file a motor torte case.
Sway bar issues can be part and parcel but manifest at all most 0 mph and can be visualized.
Best of luck, it won't be bad but advise on indexing.
Have you been happy with truck otherwise?
