    Slide under and start by looking at the rubber boots over both ends of the front shafts. If any of the 4 are torn, give a quick shake to that shaft. If it moves, it's probably the cause. My buddy has an '88 1 ton GMC that had that happen. While plowing.. He got all the stuff to rebuild it I believe at Autozone. A real bear to change on a very rusty truck.

    Later, Chet.
