Not long, maybe half an hour.
Unbolt the transfer-case side of your rear drive shaft, take off at least one clip on the rubber boot, pull the slip joint apart, ad a shitload of grease to the splines, and put it all back together.
That's it.
The grease takes up the play in the splines.

to check your u-joints climb under the truck grab the dive shafts and shake it turn it anything you can do to try and rotate and shake the driveline do that at each u-joint if you find nothing then it not your u joints

Can it be that simple? Sometimes it feels like the tranny is going to drop on take off. Other times it's ok! If it's that simple then YEEEAAHHHHH!!!!!! I'll have to try it!

Default Re: studder/lunge on take off

I'm having the same problems described at the beginning of this post with my 1998 Mazda b2500 (2wd) in that I can hear a loud clunking coming from the rear of the transmission/front of the rear drive line when accelerating and decelerating. In the past few days I have also had the truck lunge on me while taking off from a stop.

I removed the rear drive line and checked both the front and rear U-joint for slop but both are fine, however I bought new ones with grease-able fitting to put in anyways... I keep reading posts that advise people to grease their slip yolk however the drive line I have is solid. There is a slip yolk on the font of the drive line that slides directly into the rear of the transmission but I am weary of greasing this until I know more.

help!

Well, to 01DangerRanger and Mazda2500 I would suggest taking your slip-yoke on the drive shaft apart and greasing it liberally. Or in the 2wd truck's case, the slip-yoke to the transmission.
From the research I've done and my own experience that is the first place to start.

Whenever I hit the gas (before I greased the slip-yoke) I had a clunk and jerk, turned out the slip-yoke was dry and needed grease. And now its smooth as butter. The grease takes up the space that the splines in the slip yoke naturally need.

Start eliminating the problem with the most simple and cheapest fixes.
