In some cases I have seen blown intake manifold gaskets cause a milkshake in the crankcase inspect the lower intake gaskets coolant passages at the end of the cylinder heads for damage. I would suggest a compression test and a cylinder leak down test befor further tear down.

SOURCE: Grinding noise front end.
I say it's the CV joints. You have to jack up under the lower A-Arm, to take the spring pressure off of it, to check them.
(Use jack stands, and wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Emergency brake On. Work on a hard level surface. Be SAFE! Trucks can be replaced, YOU cannot!)

Its is a common problem for these engines. There is a problem with the design of the piston where carbon causes a knocking sound, very noticeable when its colder and has been sitting. It should go away after it warms up. If it does not, then it is probably something else all together.
The only way to fix the problem if it is only knocking when its cold is to pull of the heads and soak the cylinders and piston heads in solvent.
I have a 2001 Silverado 5.3 that has been doing it since I got it, I contacted GM about it and they assured me it does NOT do any damage to the engine.

Transmissions are drained by removing the pan itself. A new filter is to be installed upon draining. That is why there is no drain pan plug. The Chevy Powerglides were the last American made car with a drain plug in the 1965
