My truck has a low speed driveline squeak (squeaky rubber sound) and some weird clunks. It also makes some weird noise when going down a hill in second gear (6sp manual) while using the engine to hold it back. I suspect the rear U-joints so checked them out. They are the origional U-joints (35000 miles) and seem OK but appear to have thrown some of their grease out. The only troubling thing I found was the amount of play in the tailshaft of the transfer case when I push up and down on the drive shaft to check out the U-Joints. How much play is normal here? and could the squeaking sound come from the little rubber dust shroud on the tailshaft housing? Any other ideas?

I just went outside and checked mine.Their is no play where the drive shaft goes into the transfer case.I know my truck is older,but I do not think you should have alot of play their.

the one that has the grease coming out of it is probably the one squeaking im guessing that it also the rear u joint that exactly what mine did
