The Yoke here in Canada is about $550. at the dealer-- only place I found one available. The "klunk" is caused by the internal splines binding on the output shaft splines. YES it is the rear drive shaft and to replace it -- it is done how You discribe. I did not see any shinny sports on Mine but it is possible. The nickel plated one has more "slip" to it. It cured Mine perfectly.

wow 500 bucks for this part. i dont think i will be replacing it unless it will cause damage if left alone. this is definalty something that chevy should have taken care of while under warranty. instead of saying "that is normal". everytime i brought it to them while under warranty they always said the same thing if money was comming out of there pocket.
now for the past 10k miles my abs has been comming on at low and dry speeds. i just diconnected one wheel sensor. this made the light come on the dash. so i took the dash out and put black electrical tape over the light under the dash overlay. this way you dont see the light and you dont see the tape.

Seems to be in rear end during shift from 1-2 and at downshift sometimes. Is this the yoke spline problems or is this very sloppy tolerances in rear end?? Is there really a fix for this? Have 44k on the truck.

I just recently bought my silverado and have also noticed a clunk only from a dead stop under light or heavy acceleration. It doesn't do it all the time, it does sound like it comes from the rear end.
Is there anyway to check the yoke at home or should i just bring it in for a mechanic to check things over? This clunk bothers me when it happens.
