Like from the rear axle? Pull the drain plug and see if any metal. Aso pull off your rear drums and check your rear brake hardware

thanks for the reply, i will do those both asap. i couldnt say where exactly, just from the rear of the truck. i also just heard some strange clunking from the front passenger side, maybe around where the front door is. started it up, gave it a little rev and heard two clunks. didnt happen again. if it isnt one thing its another lately!

It could even be a suspension bolt or a missing shock bushing too? Just going to need to poke around with eyes wide open looking for clues. Good luck! post up if you find something ~

down in a hole.
drop the drive shaft and check for play(up-down/side-side) if the diff pinion flange. while it's off, check the drive shaft u-joints for play/wear and grease every thing. check the Tcase flange as well...they don't tell as much with the driveshaft on as they do with it it off...
