    I was under/beside/around/near my blazer as my wife rolled it back and forth and to and fro. I did everytrhing short of removing the driveshaft(it was dark) anyway I have decided its NOT the diff but a seized u joint. It complains when it has to start moving but quiets down when it's under way. I'm going to get more into it tomorrow. I've always known u joints to fall apart. Never noticed one that froze up (yet). I'm really hoping thats all it is. I really don't want to tear into the diff. My wife would sh!t if I had to replace it. Wish me luck!

    If it's almost froze, the damage is already started.

    That would be cool if it was just the u-joints instead of the diff! Whew! How old are they?
