FORD EXPEDITION U JOINT PROBLEM

1997 Ford Expedition • 150,000 miles

When I pulled away from a stop sign, I heard a pop come from the rear end and the truck started shaking. Now when I drive it I have to take off slow and when it starts to shake let off the gas and ease back into it. Thought maybe it was a broken motor mount but they look ok. The u joints are fine also. Im thinking it might be the spider gears inside the axle but not sure. What is your recommendation and estimated cost of fixing? Thank you.

I would look harder at the u joints. Then remove the cover from the rear and inspect for damage.

No estimates till the failure is determined
