Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado
Recently my 2001 chevy silverado z71 has been making a loud ticking noise only when i am on the gas just starting off. it sounds like it's coming from under the truck around the transfer case. i have asked many people what they think it is and nobody really knows for sure. i've already replaced the rear u-joint and thuroughly checked the rear end. it doesnt make the noise when going in reverse or when i am in 4wd. it started to make noise only when i was going between 45 and 55 mph and at only about 1/4 throttle. and it doesnt make the noise when i get on it. does anyone know what it is?
Replace the front u joint. I had the same issue with my truck, and I noticed that the front u joint didn't come stock with a greese zerk, the oem replacement does so they wear out fast. by the time I found it, it still looked ok till I removed the drive shaft....It was very close to wearing through.

This sure sounds like a U joint, check them all again.
