Busted Ujoints, bearings what?

Hey Guys.

So, I had some play in the front/rear driveshaft for some time.



I was told to check the ujoints, but they all seem great. There is no play between the ujoint and the holder, so i removed the driveshaft front and rear connected to the differential, and there seems to be play at the differential connector.

Recently a clicking noise started to occur which I believe is in the rear, i lifted both rear tires and put it in drive and could barely hear it. When I accelerate i can hear the clicking noise after i let go of the gas. If I step on it and let go right away, it starts making a loud knocking noise.



what could it be? ujoints seem fine so Im assuming it could be pinion or bearings?

Thanks

If the play is in the tranny and not in the shaft you are gonna need a mechanic.

I had two teeth of the rear diff gear busted and got it fixed. Now I get another whining noise which might be the tcase?



At 10 sec the noise starts
