Driveline - metal popping noise

Would pop from dead stop to start of acceleration. Dealer diagnosed the sound was generated from the drive shaft internally. Replaced the driveshaft and all is well so far. 4300 mi.

Probably a bad u-joint or loose slip yoke. Good to hear that they treated you right.

I have the exact same issue. Over four visits to the dealer, this time they are replacing the drive shaft after getting Ford Engineering involved. It's been on order for several weeks now. Does anyone know the TSB number and have a copy of the details?

The drive shaft wad replaced the other day and now the noise is gone. The tech said he could hear something rolling around inside the old drive shaft.

Mine used to do the same thing, now it's gone and hasn't done it in a while.

Just came over to the powerstroke side. 2012 KR F250 4x4, mine has 800 miles on it and I have noticed mine does it as well. At first I thought it was something I had in the bed of the truck. Cleaned everything out and it still does it. Does anyone know the TSB # for it.
PS came over from the cummins side, just could not support the guys that took the bailout. Engine seems a lot more complicated when you pop the hood. (kinda scary) other than that love the truck, lot better ride, lots more power, very smooth.

I've been having the same issue, however, I'm deleted and chipped so I don't want to go to the dealer. Anyone order a performance drive shaft online? (there isn't a shop local to me)

Looks like about a year since anyone replied so I hope no one is upset I resurrected a zombie post . My truck is at the dealership right now with the same noise. At first I was told it was the lift (6" with 35s done by 4wheel parts) and ford engineering told them to measure everything to make sure all the geometry was in ford specs (it was). Now they are ordering a new driveshaft. I should have it back tomorrow. And then the guy tells me I ought to get rid of the aluminum driveshaft for an agtermarket one after my warranty. So then I say well does ford make a better one? Silence, then no Sir. Does anyone know of a good aftermarket driveline? Do I need one? I don't do a whole lot of off roading. I tow a boat and a small trailer from here to there, nothing that is anywhere near the capacity of these trucks. Thanks for any advice, I really enjoy getting smarter by reading these posts. Take care
