Default popping/clicking in drivetrain under load??

Not too long ago (few months ago)I replaced all but the 2 front U-joints.About a month ago I started hearing a popping or clicking noise that sound like is coming from maybe my middle shaft.I hear it on take off,under load and sometimes changing gears? any ideas???

Did you use Suzuki U-Joints? Anything else is going to wear out quick.

Think it could be the joint or maybe the input shaft? ive heard this could also be the problem if worn? I noticed last winter my 4WD popping out if I did bungie it in place...

I'd check them. Easy enough, just slide under and give the shaft a twist while holding both yokes in your other hand. There should be no play.

I'd check the joints first.


As for popping out of 4wd, have you replaced the shifter sheet?
