Well...I started to hear a squeaking sound as I was driving home. I jacked up one front wheel this morning, put in neutral and started to spin the wheel. Then I locked the diff...how much play should my front prop have? I check the rubber joints at the wheels, no tears from what I can see.

I know my DI has a silly amount of backlash combined between the transfer case and the front diff. I can get about 1/16th of a turn at the wheel. But everyone I have spoken to says that's about right.

Can you tell where it's coming from? Does it happen when you run over a bump, constant, under acceleration?

Try shaking the body in different directions. Could be a bushing.
