    What Tranny?
    Transfercase?
    Detroit in the rear axle?
    Are the u-joints in good shape?

    its a 700 r-4 with a 208 transfer and my u joints have no apparent play when put in neutral and twisting the drive shaft. and nope just a gov-bomb in the rear. it seemed to got worse when i had to romp my truck cause i was stuck in a ditch going straight with the wheels cut left. but i think its always beent his bad im just making it seem worse but ethier way theres alot of slack

    Set the parking brake on a flat level surface. then put the trany in neutral. Get under the truck and twist the driveshaft back and forth.

    You might be able too see where the slop is if it is in a u-joint or the rear axle.
    If the rear axle then pull the diff cover and check it out.

    that style tranny tcase is male tranny female tcase setup. not a lot of room for play like the old 205 tcases couplers.

    Mine has some play, I don't worry about it though. I keep an eye on things and it doesn't vibrate so I don't see the need to worry about it. With so many connections you can expect a little of play/slack in it. Not a lot but a little.
