Rubbing Action!!! :-D

So I have been hearing a popping noise sometimes when I hit a good bump going moderate speed and sometimes turning. Well when I first heard it I checked and couldn't seem to find what the cause was. Lately it seems I hear alot more of this so I crawled back under and took another look and this is what I found. My U Joint seems to be fine which I thought was the prob until I saw this. Any ideas what my options are. Im thinking washers between the beam and the frame bad idea?

You can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a bull's ass but wouldn't you rather take the butcher's word for it!

you could just notch a piece out of the skid plate or use washers to lower it if you currently have vibes.

Yeah I saw that thread the other day and relized it after I posted. But I have neither the tools nor skills to pull that one off. I will figure something out thanks.

Take the skid plate or drive shaft off until you can get it fixed. It doesn't take much runout in the drive shaft to cause some vibrations that will drive you crazy.
