ANGRY SPARROWS!

pull the shaft, the cv joint needs to be rebuilt. It's really common, especially if you wheel in mud.

It started like 3 hours away from Attica that is the weird thing. So I need to figure how to get rid of it.

Well, you were already told how to get rid of it by TeeJay above, what more do you want?

The problem is either a bad u-joint (or two) or the centering joint inside your CV joint at the transfer-case end of the front driveshaft. One or more of those items need to be replaced, find a local independent driveshaft shop who will do the job for very likely far less than a 4x4 shop or the dealer will charge since odds are they'll just send it to the same driveshaft shop.

No worries. Next time someone asks about a front end squeak I'm just gonna tell them to hit it with 12 gauge bird shot.
