    its an8 5 chevy k20

    factory th400,np208 and rear 14 boltff

    theres a WIERD ass clicking noise from acceleration on up to about 30 35 mph,sometimes going around a corner can stop it,or start it clicking again.

    i crawled under it and checked the u joints,they seem nice and tight.

    one other thing,about am onth back,the truck was stuck in about 3-4 feet of water for about 4-5 hours before it could get recovered.

    i flushed the front fluid,was milky as hell
    i flushed the rear fluid,it wasnt milky,buti changed it anyways,with 85 90 weight. thats what schmucks said it called for.

    it only does it under power,it goes away if i let off the gas and coast. any thoughtS?

    Check your lock-out hubs and hub bearings and axle shaft joints.

    Just because a u-joint LOOKS good, it doesn't mean it IS good. I learned that lesson the hard way, brother......

    well i know,but the severity of this just happened tonight,so i did the best i could without my tools and without any light,to the touch,it seems fine.

    eh well,probably needed new joints anyways,think i might just change ALL of them,since about 80% of the joints sat in water for a good length of time.

    whats a good joint for the front 10 bolt axle shaft joints,the front dshaft ujoint,and the rear joints?

    how much of a beatch is the CV to rebuild?

    anybody got tq specs and procedures for the front 10bolt wheel bearings,and the rear 14 bolt wheel bearings?

    also,when i cleaned the diffs out,i BLASTED the hell out of them with brake cleaner and carb cleaner,could that have any effect? i know both diffs were completely refilled with gear lube,i just poored it in until it started to bleed out of the fill plug.

    the first thing i would do is replace the u-joints.
