    the only thing could be is in your trans.

    change your fluid in the trans a look to see if there is any metal filings in the fluid.

How do i reinstall the driveshaft on a chevy 1500 1994? I can't get the driveshaft to go back into the transmission.

Check the splines in the yoke. You will notice that you have a gap. That gap lines up with an extra wide slpine on the transmission output shaft. Once you have them lined up it will slide right in. Then if you need to turn the driveshaft to get the rear universal to line up with the rear yoke, simply put the trans in neutral and you can turn the driveshaft. Hope this helps.

How do I replace the driveshaft bearing support?

You jack up the truck, and support it on jack-stands. (no wheel must touch the ground, for safety).
Remove the two front tires for visibility.
Put the tansmission in neutral and apply the handbrake.
Get under the truck and in the area of the support-bearing, mark the position of the driveshaft to the flange, which has 4-bolts.
Remove the 4-bolts.
Pry off the driveshaft with a flat-end screwd-river.
Remove the bolts holding up the support bearing.
Drop it down and pull off the support bearing.
Reverse these procedure for installation.
