    While driving on the highway in D or 3rd, when I let my foot off the gas and when I press on the gas again I hear a whiring noise and a slight clank. I have only checked it in D and 3rd and it is more pronounced at higher speeds. Any and all help is appreciated.
    Thanks Eric

    Sounds like you have a u-joint going bad in your rear driveshaft. Welcome to the club![​IMG] Just to be safe, I'd check the transmission fluid level and condition (burnt smell=bad).
    What branch of the military are you in?

    I agree with Jarhead- it's one of your rear u-joints. Better get her fixed before you find out the hard way how much it costs to get your driveshaft balanced after it bounces off the pavement for a quarter mile!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the info, just had the u joints replaced a year ago and it has only been driven 6mo. since that. I have an addaleaf and 32" tires. Could this be putting the driveshaft at a wrong angle causing the u joint problem??
