So last night I replaced the front ds u-joint at the front diff. I also replaced the rear ds u-joints (both rear diff and trans). My vibration and hum have disappeared, but when coming to a stop I still have a slight clunk. Short of it being either the front or rear pinion bearing (that's gonna be $$$$), what else could it be? The clunk is intermitent; sometimes I get it sometimes I don't. It had gotten pretty bad before I did the u-joints, and was felt through the brake and clutch pedals. I've checked motor mounts and they appear to be fine from what I can see. RCD front diff bracket is fine too. So I'm thinking CV, tie rod, or ball joints, but driveline isn't bad nor does steering feel odd or different. I believe both of my lower BJs are greaseable, and possibly both tie rods as well (I know at least 1 is). These were installed July 07 after I'd lifted the truck. Sadly I haven't greased them since and plan to do that today or tomorrow once it stops raining and the suspension dries.
