After replacing my bent drive shaft I thought all was well. I drove about 400 miles with no problems. I was driving down main street about 30 mph when I heard a thud, thud, thud so I pulled over and stopped. I took off again at ilde and thud, thud, thud again. I stopped, shifted to reverse, backed up a few feet, shifted to drive and it was gone. Today I drove up and down main and only heard a thud once. I really think it is coming from the rear end.
I removed the rear wheels and inspected the brakes. All looks good there. I really have given up on this truck. I suppose the bent drive shaft messed and rear axle up somehow. I do like the truck but now I feel I can't leave home with it or it might fall apart.
It's going back to the shop ASAP for a look over. The dealership I bought it from paid the first bill, I bet they will LOVE another. I know it's hard to diagnose a problem over the internet but what the hell is happening here?
