Driveshaft rattle????

when my front driveshaft is in and i hit higher rpm's there is a loud rattle. so i pulled it and no longer have the rattle. i think it might be a ring/pinion issue, but not comfortable enough to make that call. any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you check the Ujoints in the front drive shaft? Start small before jumping to the big stuff.

Yea, check yokes and u joint for wear. Could've lost a weight causing it to be unbalanced. If it's a "rattle" it could be your exhaust pipe rubbing the driveshaft from a worn donut gasket. Start small
