Why not try the right ones from ford? Itd be faster than the week you've already spent on this.

got new joints from ford. they measure the same as the aftermarket ones. and fit the same as well. I'm leaning towards my driveshaft being bad. anyone have any suggestions?

I had the same problem but mine turned out to be from my 500 hp clutch and the harsh engagement cause the straps on the axle yoke to get all bent out of place so they sprin freely in the yoke, been like this for 5000 miles and no problems.
