single piece drive shaft swap.

got a question i hope you all can help me out with. Specs for my ranger are in sig

I was wondering if there is any bolt on single piece driveshaft that would require no mods other than removing the carrier bearing support? I have a 2 piece now, and have an obnoxious clunking noise on most take offs, and changing directions (forward to reverse). i would like to eliminate the carrier bearing as the issue, i already replaced all the U joints.

Does anyone know what the clunking might be? i've heard of the slip yoke bind, but this seems to get worse the more stress thats put on the driveshaft (backing out of a sloped driveway vs flat for example). thanks for the help!

Once the slip yoke coating on the one piece drive shaft wears off you will have the same problem. Try re-greasing your slip yoke.

yes, a one piece will work fine in your truck. just needs to come from the same trans/cab configuration. so you would need one from a 4wd ext cab (i'm assuming you have an ext cab).
