I hear a constant clanking while in motion. I heard it might be the ujoint but I am not sure. Thanks

Brandon: It could be a u-joint. With the park brake on so the truck can't move, place it in neutral so there is no tension on the drive shaft. Get under the truck and see if there is any play in the u-joints. Also, just so you know, if the u-joints are bad, many times you will feel a vibration when moving.

Check it out and let me know what you find.
