Post subject:  02 K1500 Driveshaft

Hey, my mom has a 2002 Chevy K1500, ext. cab, long bed 5.3L, automatic. Its been making some driveline noise, so i assumed it was gonna be a ujoint. Got it in the shop today and its pinging an clanging from inside the back half of the rear driveshaft! Anyone heard of this or know whats goin on? Ive never seen anything like it before. Prolly gonna call fort wayne clutch and see what they think or can do about it.

ya, i called them. They said 90 bucks to cut it open, see whats in there, weld on a new yoke cap and then balance it all. So, im gonna pull it after work, double check the ujoints one more time to make sure there isnt a needle bearing loose and transfering noise through the shaft. If all is good with those then off to f.w. clutch to figure out what the heck is in the driveshaft.

well, turns out it wont need to go there afterall. Took the driveshaft off and the ujoint for the rear pinion was damn near completely seized. For some reason when we where under the truck at work it wasnt making noise anywhere near the ujoint itself, it was just transferring through the shaft to the middle of the shaft itself and sounded exactly like a piece of metal inside of it clanging around. Luckily, i already have a ujoint handy. Now i just gotta get the rubber driveshaft support thing since the rubber is deteriorated almost completely away
