    The tcase is more likely to be the issue in my opinion because it was never really built to pull the entire weight of the truck with the front axle.

    Very hard to follow your post with no punctuation. what year is the truck? auto or standard trans? after replacing the rear shaft it won't move in 2wd without grinding? does it move in 4wd without grinding? does it feel like the brakes are dragging?
    Engine off, jack up the rear so both tires are off the ground. E brake off, trans in neutral, 2wd. can you spin the rear tires by hand? any noise?

    I am not sure about that T-case model. But, my 1995 had a simulaiar issue. It would grind in 2wd under load, not in 4wd. Turns out that a c-clip popped off a shaft inside the t-case. The dealer fixed it under warranty. if it happened again I was going to put one of these on it. This site kinda shows the issue. http://www.drivetrain.com/parts_cata...ase_saver.html
