correct. i replaced the whole carrier-elocker.
now this will take me a minute to remember exactly what i did.
i believe the passenger side shaft is just a hair too long, and the splines bottom out on the input to the trutrac. i swapped my passenger side axle for a non elocker passenger side axle and the contact patch was hovering right at 50%
i think if you had a decent machine shop you trusted, could just extend the splines on your existing axle about an inch or so. this would be about the same price i think, but you contact patch will be 100%
im not saying your elocker mechanism is toast like mine was, but it sounds really similar to the noise mine made.
i also thought it was u joints originally. i swapped all 4 before i finally mounted a camera under the truck and could pinpoint the carrier making the noise. from there i pulled the cover and looked and all looked fine.
tossed the locker on in my yard and got up to speed and it was whisper quiet. that was enough evidence for me to order the trutrac that night.
