    Greetings all,
    1978 K5. Problem started a couple of days ago. I am getting a squeaking/rubbing sound from my truck. It happens pretty much only after driving a bit (3+ miles) and happens only on acceleration, and occasionally for a second or two on decceleration. I was thinking it might be a u joint problem. I crawled underneath and started wiggling my driveshafts. The front end of my rear driveshaft had a bit of play in it. Is a little play ok or should it be solid? I know there is very little information here, but is there any other places I should look? All help is appreciated! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
