    First I hear a cling cling noise coming from the front as im moving slowly,say in a parking lot...
    is it a wheel bearing ? Second noise is in the rearend..when the K-5 has been driven about 20 miles
    and I slow down I mean less than walking speed I hear and feel a grinding or popingnoise like
    u-joints in a bind...Had the u-joints checked all is fine...WHATS UP...does not make this noise

    Hey I hear that popping noise all the time. What is that? Its really annoying and it can't be good fro my truck. It got a lot worse after I went off roading.

    does the strange noise seem to be coming from the engine or suspension area?. do you have rear drum brakes? my truck makes a popping noise and clanking when im going slow i've determined it to be the rear drum brakes binding up and making that noise. could this be your possible problem?

    I would check your wheel bearings, and if you have auto hubs these cuold be the problem too. Rear noise could be the brakes if someone else checked your u-joints I would check them yourself to make sure.

    I'm sure this is not the case for you, but I had a "funny" neighbor tie a bell under my truck. Just removed it without ever telling him I had found it. Wheres your bell now funny boy!!!![​IMG]

    Hey Espen, there's a better way to get him back. Put one of those big 24" zip ties around his driveshaft, and leave the end sticking out- whackety whackety whack [​IMG][​IMG]
