How to fix driveline clunk in Chevy truck?

My truck is a NNBS 2008 crew cab and it was doing the clunk. I’ve also heard that marine grease works a little better because it’s thicker. dalejrfan88 wrote: The fix for my 03 was dipping a racquetball in Vaseline and putting it in drive shaft to soak up the extra lash/play. Then it was silent.

Why does my Silverado have a clunky drive shaft?

It has that stupid drive-shaft clunk. I have heard of the grease method as well as the racquetball method, both are band aids but not fixes to the problem. The actual problem, or what I have researched is that, under acceleration, the axle rotates causing axle wrap, that axle wrap in return pushes the drive-shaft forward causing the clunk.

Why does my GM Truck make a popping noise?

X2.. This is a bad CV joint causing your clicking & popping Jordan. Check it & see if it’s dry. You may just need to pump a little grease into the boot & squeeze it into the joint to stop it if it isn’t too far gone. The fact that the noise is worse on a tight turn just solidifies the outer CV joint as being the problem.

So far we established that the humming noise is only prevalent once 4WD is engaged and not while driving in 2H. This is due to the fact that 2H mode only rotates the rear driveshaft or prop-shaft as some call it and does not engage the front driveshaft, differential and transfer case at all. So we can safely omit those when in 2H mode.
