Thank you for all the replies.
I noticed today a slight "ticking" when at low speeds coasting. It seemed to either go away at higher speeds or I just couldn't hear it. I do have a "rumble" when coming to a stop coasting and also when applying brakes normaly. I did a total rebuild of the front end last fall - birfield knuckles. I also checked the diff fluid in the front diff and changed the fluid in the transfer case, which was also done last summer. My drive shafts seem solid. Rumble & low speed "tick" seem to be coming from the front end.
Vehicle has Lockers and has 140,000 miles on it. Year 1997. TLC.
Also, it doesn't seem any better or worse when the wheel is turned either direction vs straight. Drives fine and the rumble is more of a feel then a noise. The "tick" is a noise though.
Was wishing for a nice shot U-joint but this sounds more involved.
I had comments saying to remove the front axle and drive around to see if the noise was gone. Im not sure how this is done. I did take the drive shafts out of each side during the birfield rebuild but how do I drive the TLC without the front axle!
Thanks all, if all else fail, I'll have to take it in... I have a bad feeling about this one....
