Thats what is bad on mine, driving down the road and all you hear well it would be like if someone took gravel and put it between the joints and it crushing it everytime it turns, and when i pull it off the joints are very easy to move and they sound the same when you move them by hand

Sound about right coming from Charlotte, NC to you? That's assuming 20 lbs, 32" inches long, 6" wide, 6" high.

I've never taken a drive shaft out but we might be able to arrange something and I could toss the shaft your way. Is it easy? I have basic tools
