    Have you checked the u-joints on the driveshaft?

    Check your transmission>? It may sound like your rear-end from inside the truck but it could be elsewhere.

    Grease up the driveshaft splines on the front yolk with teflon grease or the GM lube specified in the owners manual. Common problem, just did the same thing myself.
