    sounds like the pop noise is coming from the ring gear or the yoke, when i put it into gear.

    <font color="green"> A 12 bolt in an 89? I assume that you swapped it in? It sounds like there's not really enough information to make a good diagnosis, but if you trust the mechanic then it's probably gone. Why not just ask him what was "gone" in it?</font>

    sorry its not a 12 bolt my dad was wrong, well i dont like the mechanic he didnt even give us all the bolts back with the truck, and the mechanic looked at it about 6 months ago se we dont know exactly, its not the ujoints the sound seems to come from the yoke area.

    well if it is a gov-bomb, they like to be sloppy like that, at least mine did, then it blew up due to a carrier bearing ear that broke off with the bearing, and a yoke that was finger tight, it was a mess, so i did swap in a 12 bolt, open /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif.
