O.K so yesterday on my way to work I noticed a vibration going down the highway that was never there before. Just as I reach inbetween 55 up to about 60/65 I started getting this vibration in my stearing wheel and stick shirt. But once I either gave it gas just a hair mor or let off the vibration vanished. I replaced the plugs and wires and it helped a bit so this am when I got to work I reset my fuel mixture a touch < just did emissions so I needed to retune any way > then on my way home I noticed my temp guage just [bleep] the bed. Now just wait a minute its not over with just yet [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img] On my way back from cashing my check my clutch / tranny .... some where in that linkage area ..... is now making a kind of popping sound when enguaging second gear .....

well good news is I found the one thing that was making all the scary noises and vibrations bad news is I found it the hard way on my way to pic up my daughter for the weekend. It was the front U-joint for the rear axel luckily it snapped right down the street from a parts store but damn its hard to replace in the middle of a busy intersection and no one wants to either stop traffic long enough to push the truck out the road or even help push the beast but its back in and running great again.
Any one here know anything about the heavy duty splines with a 45 degree rotation I saw them on "Trucks" and cant remember what was said about the cost or install but remember them saying how good and strong they are
you dont want that driveshaft in somehting you are goign to drive evryday. it uses not centering ball, and wears realy quickly. also it vibes pretty good, and is real expensive. i have $900 in my 80* CV
I go tto looking at the thrashed u-joint and it seems as if its the original witch wouldnt suprise me none. Im just trying to figure out a way to make this from being a frequint ordeal. The drive shaft from an f-350 but Im not sure just how well its going to hold up with a for d9 inch front and rear
