Drive shaft ticking during acceleration on a 1998 Silverado Z71
I have a 98 extended cab 5.7 140,000 mi. Has anyone experienced ticking when acceleration? I thought it was ABS problem but I was told it was the drive shaft? Any thoughts?

Yeah Im with @Pikey on this one.. You can grease it if its got a grease zerk as pikey said but its probably a band-aide as its on its way out. If you pull up to a drive thru for example you can hear the sound better and they sometimes sound like a bed spring creeking too. Let us know if you find the problem.. Its always nice to hear the symptoms of problems and then know what the problem actually was. Good luck!!

That's the funny thing, The ujoints are tight and it doesn't make noise when changing gears! I've heard the aluminum drive shaft have something inside that comes loose and makes it sound like its stressed (ticking) under load.

If you can find a fence, or an underpass, stop next to it (or in it), driver's window down, and pull away. As long as you are increasing speed the noise should bounce off the fence, or wall, and you should hear it.Ray
