Could also be a bad axle shaft u-joint since they are full time splined to the hub unless you have aftermarket hubs installed.

Yes, usually u-joints will get stiff before they get loose.

A stiff axle u-joint will definitely cause what you are experiencing.

Yea did you replace the front driveshaft u-joints or front axle u-joints? I was talking about axle u-joints.
