    I located the joint that is making the noise. First joint forward of the TC is clunking badly. I assume it's not a serviceable joint. What is involved in switching this out?

    pull the drive shaft, and change the universal joints in it.

    Yeah, I figured that much but have n.ver done it on this truck. Was wondering if there are any tricks to it special tools required. I just located the issue, didn't look at how to take it out when I was under there.

    Unbolt, press out, press in, reinstall.
