The t-case has 220k on it. It doesnt seem to have anything really wrong with it beyond there is some slight slop in that output. There is not any bearing sounds, or problems shifting into 2wd or 4wd. Its not a ton of slop, but enough to draw my attention. I wish I had the time to rebuild one right now, and could afford to have my truck down for a while, but work is way to busy.
I think I may pull the tail housing off this weekend, and take a look at what is going on. I may have found a source for the needle bearing that is back there. Is that a press on fit? Or does it just slide in the tailhousing?
Could it also be possible that the nut on the yoke was not tightened enough? Maybe the previous owner didnt torque it down enough and over time worked loose...I know I have had that happen to the pinion nut on my Jeep once and destroyed the seal.
