Can i switch a 2001 gmc yukon danli xl rear end drive shaft with a 2001 gmc yukon xl

Yes, chances are they are identical. The Denali possibly has an aluminum shaft but there is no reason that you cannot interchange.

Clicking noise during turning,

I'm going to assume that the Yukon is a 4X4, and will therefore also assume that the clicking noise is coming from one of the two drive axles (likely the right side). Check under the truck near the wheels and you will see the drive axles with a rubber bellows boot on either end. It is likely that the boot closest to the wheel has torn and allowed the grease to escape the constant velocity (CV) joint. The boot or possibly the axle will have to be replaced.

I cant change my 2001 yukon out of 4low! There is a loud clicking noise when i try to drive in 4Low. What should I do?

You have torque bind. It is caused by driving on pavement in 4wd. 4wd is only supposed to be used on a slippery or loose surface. You'll need to try backing up for a few feet and then shifting it out. If that does not work, you'll need to get a jack and raise one end of the truck off the ground so that the axles can "unwind" and release the torque in the drive train.

Loud engine noise or knocking when AC on

Have your air compressor for your air tested. Sounds like its bad.

Mark your drive shaft coincidenly with the rear axle and tranny. Remove drive shaft. Press out the old u joints and press in the new. You will need a torch for heat and a lot of patience. Have fun!

Rear end noise?

This sounds like ring and pinion noise, new bearings and a gear set will cure the problem.
