DRIVESHAFT PLAY HELP!!

Hey guys. Im going to make this easy to read:

- the last few days my truck has been vibrating/making noise at around 50 and 75 ish MPH.

- it also makes a clicking/"gas grill ignitor" noise when going from 0-15 miles an hour

- I took it into GOODyear to get a diagnostic.

- they said my driveshaft has play in it, they can move it 30* with their hand. and that my rear 2 U-Joints have play in them, and that my front right axle seal is leaking.

- they dont know if this is whats causing the shaking/vibrating/noise




Do any of you guys know if this stuff seems like it would be causing it?!!! I need help!!

I am planning on buying all of my parts from O'rielly and then either doing it myself or taking it to a shop.

Are U-Joints easy to install? its the 2 rear ones. what a bout an axle seal?


THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not thats I know of bro. I do know its pretty cheap to have them installed at a shop if you have the driveshaft out. It would take like 5 mins.

i would find some spicer 5-160x u-joints and pay a decent shop to install them. without the proper tools it could be an all day job and possibly damage a yoke. they get rusted and frozen to the yoke and can be a pain to remove.

I had the same vibration in the 70 MPH range and it was the U-joints. You can use a vice and a socket if you dont have a press, its the bobo way but it works. It takes like 15 mins once you get the driveshaft off
