clicking from driveshaft

when i drive my 2wd toy (prerunner wannabe). I get his clicking sound which varies with the speed i am driving at, irrespective of the gear im in. It goes away sometimes, but always returns shortly thereafter.

My driveline angle is pretty tame however I have recently done a rear spring swap to increase travel (from 7.5" to 12")and i'm thinking this reconfiguration may have casue some already tired driveshaft bearing to quit on me.

The sound seems to be comming from under the cab - so i am thinking carrier bearing. I was thinking of taking the driveshaft out and checking how the bearing spins.

Does anyone have experince wth this stuff? anything to watch out for?

thanks
samir

Re: clicking from driveshaft

My little causin has an 86 4x, and a little ring around the rear drive shaft kept vibrating and making sound. We went under there one day and it was so loose you could move it up and down the driveshaft. Just a simple weld and it's good as new. I don't know if this can help you but good luck,

Re: clicking from driveshaft

thanks AARONR

i spoke to the folks at race-dezert and figured out it was in need of new needle bearings.
I verified this and they were right - just got to et around to swapping em out someday.
