That's what my dad said. He's an experienced mechanic, too. He said something about it being Ford, and the type of axle, that it's normal.
Thanks for that.
As for the U-joints, I had someone look at those some time ago, and they were normal, he said. However, this 'rumbling' is worse, now than it was then. So... I'll have the pinion bearing checked...
