Drive shaft cracking noise answer!

I recently had an issue with my 2012 f250 6.7 powerstroke drive shaft making a noise whenever I would put the truck in R or D. It would also make a noise whenever I would start to push the pedal and stress would be added. My truck had an aluminum drive shaft but the new one is steal.

Sounds like one or more dry u-joint truninons. Not the shaft itself.

We took two other same year trucks that were in for service and they had the same noise. The owners of the trucks had no noticed the sound. I am just ocd about my truck. If you order a new drive shaft for your truck it will be a steel one that you will get.
