Unhappy Grinding sounds...

Well ****.

I went to the money spending station and filled my truck up. When I left I made a turn and got on it, not WOT, but gave it some throttle. When the truck got to 60 mph I let off and coasted. I heard a very high pitch grinding noise. It doesn't do it unless I am doing around 45 mph or higher.


Bearings?

Well turns out the hubs were locked?

Anyways, the u-joints seem to be pretty damn loose. There shouldn't be any play in these right?

They both move about 1/2 an inch....
