thanx in advance.
Had the same problem in my truck when I first bought it, crawl underneath and check your carrier bearing on the drive shaft right behind the slip joint. I can almost guarantee that is the cause. Easy to replace and relatively cheap, and while you've got the drive shaft out, might as well do rear U joints, I fixed my U joints and carrier bearing for less than 100$. IIRC the U joints were about 10 bucks a piece and the carrier bearing was 45 bucks. took about 1 1/2 hours to do.
