This gets my vote, because sometimes, we don't notice incremental changes until they're huge:

Is your driveshift one piece?? If so--have your checked the splines at the slip yolk??
Hmm...hadn't considered that....

Is the red word, above, supposed to be "sense"?

'Cause I can't make "since" of it.--LOL.

What exactly do i check about them? Should I re grease them? I do get a clunk when I put the truck in gear.

Never mind, I have a two piece. Is there still anything I should grease?

That clunk you get when first put into gear is more than likely your u-joints. If they're stock than it's definitely time for replacement. If you've never greased the slip shafts you should do that as well. Anything else down there with a zerk fitting should get a healthy dose of grease too.

My rear end got raised a bit when my pass side leaf spring shackle snapped from rust. Never really saw it but the truck pulled left so I knew something was up. Replaced shackle and hanger and it's fine now. Might wanna check that.
