strange knock

hey guys , how yall doing today?

ok lately ive been feeling a knocking on my floorboards....its very faint (no one else notices it until i point it out) and its sightly audiable (only if i turn of the radio and shut off the ventilation)

now it really only shows up when im driving slow....like in a parking lot

and its the num,ber of times it knocks lines up with how fast/slow im going

my gut says its something to do with a u-joint or something of the like in the front of the jeep...any suggestions?

drive shaft u joints should be the first thing to look at. it is a common item to need to replace and it is a cheap simple repair. i'd be surprised if it were anything other than the drive shaft.
