Well a new front u joint, new carrier bearing, and lots of looking later, its still making noise. 4th gear is the worst. The only place I can find anything questionable is the bushing in the tailshaft housing looks a little rough, although the output bearing in the transfer case was ok. There is some a small amount of front to back movement on the output shaft in the transfer case. I am assuming that is just snap ring to snap ring though. Anyone have any ideas? Put it up on stands and run it and no noise, but when i put the brakes on to give it a little load it got noisy. I'm hoping its the output shaft bushing allowing the the driveshaft to work on the splines and a new one will fix it.
