    Hey Mark, I have heard something about this a while back, if I can remember correctly it had something to do with the universal joints, they need to be greased and you also have to purge all the old grease out of them. check with your local dealer there might be a TSB on this.

    Primary cause is slip yoke. Mines been doing it for a few months. Ujoint is another item to be mindful of but I haven't heard one make the load metal "Ting" that the slip yoke does.
