    Drive Shaft Slack

    I have slack in my drive shaft and rear end
    like when I put it in drive it like jumps and makes a popping noise
    and when I go down the road it pops when I get back on the gas

    any suggestions?

    Might be too much backlash, might be play in the clutches in the diff. Could be shitty u-joints, If you havent ever thrown a driveshaft i suggest taking a few hours and a few dollars and replacing them.
