97 sierra put truck in 2wd have clicking drivers front put back in 4wd went away

First guess would be to check the drivers side, CV-joint assembly. After that is "OKed" then I would move to the front output shaft and then onto the rear drive-shaft. Checking for bad U-joints. Let me know if that helped.

Replace drive shaft carrier bearing

IF by pieces you mean "U" joints . They will only need replacing if they are show looseness in the joint or rust streaks coming out of the cross seals. The following are points that you have to be very careful off . The ears ( that part that holds the "U" joints) have to ne on the same plane on assembly . On a one piece tail shaft where the sliding spline goes into the back of the gear box that is not much of a problem but if you have a centre bearing then it is critical that you get it right. when you remove the flange from the shaft to replace the bearing the flange has to go back on in exactly the same plane as the joint at the front of the same shaft. That is to say if you place the shaft on a flat surface and the ear on the shaft is vertical then the flange ear has to be vertical as well. What it amounts to is that crosses go through a phase of speed up---slow down cycle and if you have the joints out of phase the cross of one end that is speeding up is not cancelled out by the other end which is slowing down. The end result will be a harmonic vibration the will start about 30mph get really bad at about 60mph and decrease as you go faster . Unfortunately it doesn't disappear just destroys the "U" joints and the shaft and diff and gear box bearings. There are sites on the net that have photos and diagrams that will show what I am trying to say ( hardie spicer u joints and shafts)

I have a 99 tahoe I just put an oil pump in it it seem 2 drive fine but when I get 2 about 55-65 mph I feel the truck do a jurk like it's pulling then it start 2 drive fine I change the back u joints...

First the shaft has to line up with gear teeth on the the ****** shaft. To get the other U joints off. they will have to heat up the U-joint with blow torch. Get them hot enough to where you see and hear the seal pop. Just had it done on an 89 chevy van. Also check out your lock-up tourqe convertor on your ******.

Between 50 and 60 mph there is a loud shudder type of noise and vibration from below my gas pedal..not sure what is cousing this at this truck is a 2005 Chevy silverado 4x4 2500 i put it in...

This sounds like the front drive shaft that may have worn u joints. Put the vehicle in park, set the brake and proceed to shake the front drive shaft up and down to inspect for wear. Let me know what you find.

Transmission leaking through drive shaft

the rear seal on the tail shaft must have gotten damaged when you removed the shaft. it is available at any good parts store, easy to change. you have to pull the drive shaft back out, then you can use a small hook / prybar to pull the seal out, then tap the new one into place. pay close attention to the install height of the old seal before you remove it, so you know how far to drive the new seal in. good luck!
