In a 4 wheel drive vehicle traveling 65 mph at night what are the indicators the front drive line is about to explode and what will be the related carnage?  





Well lets just say I know the answer all too well after my trip home from the meeting tonite.  I can state for a fact  that when the front end of the front driveline comes loose  and sticks in the pavement its quite a ride.  I don't know where it came apart but the front half of the dl , the slip yoke and the u joint  are MIA.  The stupid thing is the u bolts that hold the ujoint in place are still there.  As far as the damage I have a dl (what's left) that's shaped like a j, a torn though exaust and the ps belt was knocked off and lodged behing the harmonic balancer.(which i might add makes a lot of smoke)  As far as the sparks and the fire works you would have just to had been there!!
