Bad rumble in the rear end!!!

Not sure what I got going on but I think I am about to blow a ujoint in the rear. There is a just a really bad wobble noise coming from the rear and also when I accelerate it gets loud and when I stop accelerating it does not sound as bad. Could this be the rear diff or the ujoint in the rear. I went and shook the rear drive shaft and it seemed to have a lot of play. Dont know I just wanted to post to see what you all thought. Thanks for any help TOM

Re: Bad rumble in the rear end!!!

when you shook the DS, did it just have play, or was there play in the pinion and flange also. park brake on, Xfer in N, twist the driveshaft both ways, is there excessive play?

Re: Bad rumble in the rear end!!!

If you don't see any damage at the ujoints, play seems okay AND you have dissassembled the driveshaft recently Or lifted the truck without managing to dissassemble the driveshaft, check the alignment of the yokes at either end to themselves. They should be perfectly aligned with each other. If not, disconnect one end, find the alignment marks (on the end of the spline shaft and next to the boot on the socket side) and use them to reassemble the shafts properly.
