axle feel like it rolling

01 F350 7.3 when I stop or take off it feels like my axles are rolling, and I can feel/hear a thump. Installed a new drive line, but still have the thump.

Do you have the factory lift blocks or something taller? It sounds like your talking about axle wrap but it's just a guess without seeing it. Are you accelorating hard or slow when you feel it? Not sure what your referring to as a drive line but the slip joint in the drive shaft probably needs to be lubed to get rid of the thump.

Drive line or drive shaft is new, all new u-joints and carrier bearing maybe i will grease the slip joint more. It dose it every time i stop or take off, does not matter if im going slow or fast. thanks for the imput, keep it commimg.

182k Its my 1st Diesel and I love it,01 F350 4Door SB. Second owner, and the guy I bought it from had a built tran. at 150k. This thud sound that I hear when come to a stop or take off bugs me and I feel something moving, or a drives-haft with worn splines, that's why I had my Drive shaft-rebuilt, but it still dose it, I will try to add more grease to the slip-joint tonight and try it.

check the ubolts for tightness .. also look for cracked leafs in the springs .. also look at the partof the axle where the block sits on the axle sometimes they get worn and the spring just kinda flops around ... pics would help too could be a broken center pin also

Hey Tamer I'm glad I saw this post. Grats on your purchase. I also just bought my first diesel and am experiencing the exact symptoms you are. Mine is an 03 f250 SC LB 4x4 with 181.9k. I haven't crawled under to take a look yet but I have tomorrow off so I'll try and find the problem. This is also my first axle with a limited slip so I wasn't sure if this was normal on lsd. My tranny shifts fine and it really feels like it comes from the rear end but I don't have any driveline vibrations or noises.

the only thing that could spin(never seen it happen...maybe one of the hubs are catching and releasing) is the front driveshaft/axle. but the axle would have to catch when driving at speed, and release when stopping. that be as easy as locking the hubs in and leaving it in 2wd and seeing if it continues, or stops

my other bet is maybe the rear carrier bearing is worn and spinning in the housing


when my front wheel bearings up front went bad, i would feel an occasiional thump under the floor,

It feels like a truck with broken leaf springs and as you stop the truck the axle feels like its rolling out from under the truck (If that make seance ) and at the point of stopping I hear a thump, its the same when I take off.
