    check all the /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif fluids and make sure all the u-joints are good, ow and grease all the grease fittings. pretty much just look over the whole truck and make sure nothing is worn out or loose.

    make sure that the ubolts are tight too, it is not uncommon for them to loosen up overtime.
