Grab the bed of the truck and vigorously rock the vehicle from side to side. If you hear clunking in the axle, you probably need to check the carrier bearings in the differential. I had the carrier bearings, wheel bearings, and seals replaced in my mother-in-law's 1991 Ranger for $280, and it rides like a new truck. Well, ok, it rides like an 18 year old truck with a new rear end. I provided the wheel bearings and seals to the shop, and they provided the carrier bearing, lube, and labor. While the axles are out, check the surface where the axles ride on the bearings. If they are worn, there are undersized bearing available, but it is usually cheaper and easier to just by new axles.

If you are needing to remove the gas tank to replace it, then you will need to empty the tank if you are able. You can buy a pump to siphon the gas for about ten dollars. Put a jack under the tank and jack it up to the tank just enough to barely put pressure on it. After that unbolt the two straps that hold it up. Remove the straps and slowly let the tank down. Try your best not to break the gas lines. Let it down far enough to see the gas pump. If it has a metal ring with little tabs on top of the pump. Take a hammer and a screwdriver and carefully tap on the tabs of the ring and move it until it releases the pump. If it is a snap ring holding the pump it, you will have to buy a special pair of pliers to get it out. A snap ring looks like a washer that has one gap in it, with two little holes on either side of the gap. If you are only wanting to remove the fuel pump, it is actually easier to remove the bed. To do that, undo the taillights and pull the wires through the bottom of the bed, and undo all of the bolts holding the bed down. If you do have to remove the tank, removing the bed will still make it easier, as well as greatly reducing the change of breaking a fuel line. good luck!
