slip yoke or u joints?

every time i hit the brakes i hear a clunk and the same sound when i hit the gas from a dead stop. after the clunk when im brakeing there also is a faint sqeek as im almost stoped. Thinking its just the slip yoke needing some grease. Is this commen with the 4x4s.

you must have a two piece driveshaft. he has an 04 no such thing.

I would check the U-joint play, and clean, and re grease the SY

Yes, mines the two piece. If only replacing that sonofabitch was as easy as they describe. the bearing has to be pressed on. I forgot that they switched them after 98.

I'm prototype. Tasca doesn't even know what we do.
Do you know that the 2013 F-150s are aluminum bodied?
How about the new engine for the Fiesta ST's? 2.3l turbocharged 4cyl.
The T6 also has a 5cyl turbo diesel in it.
Fords Expo Police pacakge has a full roll cage in it. Who do you think made the first versions? we did.
I guess, we've made a bigger impact than even i know about.

I greaseed bolth slip yokes today and still noisey i know it may take some time for the grease to work in so i'll give it some more time. so if it don't go away it must be the U joints and i don't have mid shaft bearings. Any one else have this clunk noise?
